Nigeria midfielder Mikel Obi is looking forward to winning more trophies for English Premier League side Chelsea following his return to the club after helping his country to secure bronze medal in the men’s football event of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Mikel played a key role as Samson Siasia’s charges won the West African nation’s lone medal at the games.
The former Lyn Oslo of Norway player is now expected to battle for a starting place at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.
He however seems ready for the task ahead as he resumes training with the Blues.
“Back in the UK. Now hard work with #C FC begins. Eleven seasons, Eleven trophies and I’m not done yet,” Mikel wrote on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
Chelsea who are unbeaten in an official game this season will take on Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
