Chelsea on Saturday continued their slump in the Barclays Premier League as they were defeated 3-1 by Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
That made it the fourth defeat by Jose Mourinho’s men in eight league games this season.
The Premier League champions are just above the teams in the relegation zone in the table but Nollywood star Yul Edochie, the son of veteran actor and former broadcaster Chief Pete Edochie of Things Fall Apart fame, exclusively tells Completesportsnigeria.com’s IZUCHUKWU OKOSI that the poor run of form currently suffered by the Blues will come to an end.
Chelsea fan Edochie also spoke about Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi’s lack of playing time at the club.
BACK FROM THE POOR RUN OF FORM
“I think Chelsea will bounce back. The results so far have been disappointing really.
“But you can’t be flying high all the time. So I believe they’ll bounce back and still be title contenders.”
MIKEL OBI AT CHELSEA
“Our brother Mikel Obi is a great player. I wish he would get more playing time. Since that’s not happening in Chelsea, I feel he should go elsewhere and play.
“Mikel is currently one of our most celebrated players in the Super Eagles. I feel really bad seeing him on the bench all the time.
“Its’ not good for the image of Nigerian football. He should be playing regular football.”
“Diego Costa is a great player but I think he has a temper problem which he needs to work on.
“We need him (Costa) to play constantly, that’s what he’s paid for. Not to be banned all the time.”
“We have a great coach, Jose Mourinho, and good players as well. Jose is going through a bad period but its only normal to experience setbacks in life, that’s what makes us human.”
WATCHING CHELSEA GAMES
“Its not easy though. But when I’m free I watch their matches. I don’t get to watch all Chelsea games because of my schedule. Sometimes I watch only their highlights.”
