Samson Siasia, the coach of the Nigerian Dream Team at the Rio Olympics has revealed what his captain at the Olympics John Mikel Obi told him during the Olympic games.
According to Samson Siasia, Mikel Obi, who has been at Stamford Bridge for ten years, but is yet to feature this season told him that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte doesn’t have him in his plans.
Siasia said: “He is ready to quit Chelsea because he said this man (Antonio Conte) does not have anything for him and that was what he told me before he came down to the Olympics,”
“That was why they bought (N’Gola) Kante,” he added.
“It will be better for him to leave now because he has done very well after 11 years at Chelsea, not even Didier Drogba did not last that long there.
“He already has a British passport and two girls, he has done very well and will now leave.” Siasia said.
Mikel is yet to play a single game for Chelsea this season, and it’s rumoured that he might leave Stamford Bridge this January, either on loan or a permanent deal.
