Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi is reportedly ready to quit Chelsea in January in search of first team football but former Chelsea player Salomon Kalou has advised Mikel to wait and be patient instead of leaving.
“He [Mikel] is my dear friend. He has to wait and be patient, that is football,” Kalou told Goal.
“Patience is the key for him right now. What I learned in this game is that nothing is guaranteed in football, you can find a move fast or find yourself back in the team.
“Like Yaya, he played after not playing for several months and came back and scored two goals.
“Everything can change from today or tomorrow. Just wait for your moment. I said to Yaya [when he was on the bench]: ‘at the end of the day, you have to wait and do your talking on the pitch.’ And that’s what he did.”
