Chelsea Return Possible - Mikel Obi

Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has hinted his possible return to his former English Premier League side Chelsea where he spent ten and half seasons.

Recall that Mikel signed for Chinese side Tianjin Teda in January this year.

Speaking shortly after helping Nigeria secure qualification to the World Cup in Russia, the 31- year old said he is open to the idea of returning to Chelsea in the future.

“I didn’t have the chance to say goodbye on the pitch to the fans who stood by me for over 10 years, that itself is enough motivation for me to want to return “, Mikel said.

“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."
