Obi-Wan, Not Orangutan

John Obi Mikel is commonly known as Mikel John Obi, John Obi Mikel or John Mikel Obi (or possibly Obi-Jon Mikelbi!?).

His non-English team-mates Spaniard Juan Mata and Brazilian Ramires swear they heard referee Mark Clattenburg say "Shut it Monkey" instead of "Shut it Mikel".

Clatts probably prefers to use the name "Obi" and in his northern English accent, "Hey Obi-Wan Kenobi" probably sounded like "Hey Orangutan so sue me".
