Chelsea hero John Mikel Obi joined Chelsea in 2006 along with former AC hitman Andriy Shevchenko.
Shevchenko was at the time rated as the best striker in the world and the Ukrainian was too hot to handle by many defenders at the time.
After a stunning move to Chelsea, it didn’t really work out for the Ukrainian in the Premier League, and Mikel has revealed a strange side of Shevchenko.
Mikel has named Shevchenko as perhaps the quietest player he has ever lined up alongside, and the Nigerian admits that Shevchenko didn’t really talk to anyone at the club.
“Andriy was a really quiet guy, you couldn’t get a word out of him,” Mikel told The Athletic.
“He was probably the quietest player I have ever played with. His CV was unbelievable at AC Milan.
“I grew up watching him, so when he joined I was like ‘wow, it’s Sheva!’ We just couldn’t understand why after he arrived, he wasn’t speaking — not on the pitch, not at the training ground or outside of it. It was strange.”
