“He has won everything that a player can hope to; the Champions League, Europa, Afcon in 2013 and he also captained the national team.

“As a footballer, your laurels count and that will surely count for Mikel because nobody has won that much in Nigerian football.”

During his time at Chelsea, Mikel won 2 PL titles, 3 FA Cups, 1 League Cup, Community Shield, the UEFA Champions Leauge and also the Europa League.
