“Chelsea Is Home To Me” – Mikel Hints of Possible Return
Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel, has hinted at a possible return to Chelsea.
Mikel Obi spent ten and a half seasons at Stamford Bridge, before he left for Chinese Super League outfit, Tianjin TEDA, in January this year.
Although the 31-year-old insists he is enjoying life in Asia, he has refused to rule out a return to the Blues.
“I didn’t have the chance to say goodbye on the pitch to the fans who stood by me for over ten years, that itself is enough motivation for me to want to return,” Mikel told Owngoalnigeria.com.
“I’m very happy in China but then what I have learnt is that in football anything can happen. Chelsea is home to me due to my close relationship with the management of the team but I’m happy in China.”
