Main Reason I Quit Chelsea fc—John Mikel Obi


Nigeria Super Eagles captain and former Chelsea player, John Obi Mikel has revealed reason why his former manager at chelsea Antonio Conte kept him out of his squad. Reason is because he decided to play for Dream Team VI at the 2016
Olympics.
It was recalled that “John Obi Mikel” was called up by the then former coach Samson Siasia for Nigeria’s campaign in Rio de Janeiro and he was the leader of the team that finished third in the competition.
After coming back from the Olympic tournament, John Mikel Obi was kept out of Conte’s squad, which led to his decision to join the ChineseSuper League with Tianjin Teda.
In His recent words to NFF Media, “For me, it was a decision I had to take because when the opportunity came up to either go to Rio or play for Chelsea,”
“I decided that Victor Moses, who was the younger and hasn’t
played yet for the club, should stay back while I go to the Olympics.
“Victor stayed back and I went but when I got back the manager
never spoke to me again and did not even put me in the team, so I had to leave the club.
“For me, my commitment to play for the national team will never
change until I stop playing.
