John Shittu, the Representative of Chelsea midfielder of John Obi Mikel, has refuted claims by Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh for his decision to snub the Nigeria star for the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.

According to Oliseh, failure to establish contact with Mikel forced him to overlook the Chelsea player for his 18-man list released earlier in the week.

“I don’t know, I am not aware why he was not invited. Oliseh called Mikel and Mikel tried to call him back, ” said John Shittu to allnigeriasoccer.com.

“Mikel called Oliseh back, definitely not when the list was released, much more before that,” he concluded.
