Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi isn’t a happy man and is desperate to leave in January after Antonio Conte exaggerated injury claims, according to the Daily Express.
Before the game against Tottenham, Conte revealed Mikel had picked up an injury.
“Terry and Mikel are out. John has a muscular problem and Mikel has a muscular problem,” Conte said.
However, a source close to Mikel has revealed Mikel was not injured for the game against Tottenham and he is now desperate to leave Chelsea in January.
“Mikel is not injured and is bothered why he is not being played by Antonio Conte,” the source told AllNigeriaSoccer.
“The coach was looking for an excuse not to play him.
“There are many offers he is studying and he will decide the new club he will join in January.”
