After making a return to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea FC legends defeated Bayern Munich legends 4-0 in a charity game, Mikel Obi has jokingly hinted a return to action for the legends will solve the clubs woes.
Mikel Obi on September 9, 2023 joined former Chelsea players like John Terry, Micheal Essien, Gary Cahill, Ramirez, Flourence Malouda, Gianfraco Zola etc for a charity game vs Bayern Munich legends at Stamford Bridge in honour of deceased legendary Blues forward Gianluca Vialli.
Essein, Terry, Cahill and Tiago Mendes scored the goals as Chelsea FC legends strolled past their Bayern Munich counterparts to bring happy moments to a Stamford Bridge crowd that has endured a poor run by the current team set-up.
John Mikel Obi made 372 appearances for Chelsea between 2006 and 2016, winning every major honor during his time with the West London club but has since hanged up his boots.
” They need to bring us back, I’m joking,” Obi told Hayters TV after the game of the solution to Chelsea’s woes.
Obi will go on to make serious assessment of the current playing squad available for selection to Argentine Coach Mauricio Pochettino who joined the club this summer.
” They are fine, they will be fine. I think the club is going through a massive transition, ” Obi said.
” So we need to give them time. There are a lot of good, fantastic young players.
” We need to give them time, we need to make sure they get time to work on the training ground and start to get together as a team.
” Once we could be able to do that, I think we will be back competing again, but it’s going to take us a bit of time, ” the former Super Eagles skipper remarked.
After a nightmare 2022/2023 season that left Chelsea FC miles away from continental football, the Blues have started the new season on the same foot.
Their last game before the International break saw Pochettino’s men lose at home 0-1 to Nottingham Forest, with Mikel Obi’s compatriot Taiwo Awoniyi setting up Elanga to score the winner.
