Eagles Star Says Blues’ Target Is The EPL Crown
Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi has revealed that winning the English Premier League title this season will be the top target of his club Chelsea.
‘The Blues’ lost 3-2 to league kings Manchester City in last weekend’s Community Shield to usher in the new English Premier League campaign.
Mikel told MTNFootball that being league champions again would be top of the London club’s wish-list in the new season after they clinched a first-ever UEFA Champions League and an FA Cup winners’ medal.
Last season, Mikel’s Chelsea finished a disappointing sixth on the EPL table, well outside the Top Four they have been used to.
“I would have loved to win the Community Shield, but it was not to be. We played well against City and we showed that we are ready to challenge for titles this season,” said Mikel.
“We want to have a better campaign this season by adding the Premier League crown to what we won last season.”
He added: “We are looking forward to start the season on a sound footing on Sunday when we face Wigan Athletic. We have a good team who are capable of winning things again.”
Mikel enjoyed a fine run at Stamford Bridge and said he is looking forward to improving on this even as competition for first-team places will intensify with the arrival of new signings.
“I am always happy when I am appreciated, it makes me to work harder, to do more and now I hope to do better than what I did last season,” Mikel said.
