Mourinho Tips Mikel For Chelsea Captaincy

Mourinho Tips Mikel For Chelsea Captaincy

By James Agberebi:

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has said Nigeria midfielder Mikel Obi has what it takes to become captain of the club some day.

According to telegraph.co.uk, Mourinho made this known in a question and answer session with reporters where he touched on different issues. 

“Mikel is, after John (Terry), the guy with most years of Chelsea. I think (Cesc) Fabregas has personality for a captain too. Eden is coming with big status now and was voted one of the top ten players in Europe last year. In my opinion he should be in the top three not in the top ten.

“Let’s see what is going to happen but we have these people. But let’s say John and Branislav are our captains and the others are ready to come.”

Mikel and Super Eagles colleague Victor Moses were in action for Chelsea in their 6-5 penalty shootout win against PSG in the International Champions Cup on Saturday.

Moses scored Chelsea’s only goal in regulation time and was named man of the match.

    I think it will give him a sense of responsibility.

    Mikel as captain of Chelsea? What is he talking about captain when the young man is not given a regular playing time. I believe strongly that left for only Mourinho, Mikel would have been loaned or sold. Let him not pretend that he loves Mikel. The owner of Chelsea is a Russian. The next to him is a Russian woman. She runs Chelsea on behalf of Abranovich. She is one of the most powerful women in football. Mikel’s girlfriend is a Russian. Anytime there is to be a clear out, Mikel’s name no doubt will be included but this girlfriend will cry to one of her country person to spare Mikel. This is the only plausible explanation why Mikel is still in Chelsea without doing much. Don’t you try think so? Let Mourinho stop all this noise. Mikel too is lazy and so he is happy staying in Chelsea under the protection of the Russians.

    i have loved Chelsea because of mikel obi, so mourinho should stop this his delay tactics and allow mikel to shut out to his world of football and become a super star he has been. Making him a captain of Chelsea without a regular feature is deception of the age, if mourinho is sure mikel will feature in matches then mikel worth been the captain of Chelsea.
