JOHN OBI MIKEL was trolled after he posted a fake Ruben Neves quote to Instagram.
A Chelsea fan account on Twitter called @ThatMunichNight made up a quote six months ago from the Wolves midfielder.
The fake Neves quote read: “At Porto all midfielders were given DVDs of Mikel to take home and study every day.
“We used to call him the ‘professor of football.’”
Believing in-demand midfielder Neves had actually studied his defensive playing style along with the rest of his ex-Porto team-mates, Mikel said: “I am honoured.”
And after the prank eventually worked, the Blues fan account revealed others also fell for the troll and shared it as a genuine quote.
He tweeted: “The funniest part about this is the fact the accounts I expected to blindly copy and present it as legit news did the exact same thing.”
