Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has told his
captain, John Obi Mikel that it does not make
sense staying in a club where he cannot be
guaranteed regular football.
Rohr, who was in London to meet with Nike
officials, said it was important that Mikel moves to
keep his career going.
“He is moving come January transfer window. He
cannot stay in a club he is not playing. So he has
to move,” Rohr said.

Rohr had claimed that Mikel is being sidelined by
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte because of the Super
Eagles captain participation in the Rio 2016
Olympics.
But Conte said last weekend that Mikel will not be
leaving in January. Even as he is yet to make a
single appearance under the new Blues boss
despite being cementing his place in the starting XI
under interim Guus Hiddink.
There doesn’t appear to be a role suitable for Mikel
in Conte’s exciting 3-4-3 formation, and academy
product Nathaniel Chalobah has leapfrogged the
Nigerian in the race for a backup spot.
Mikel’s position is weakened further by his
dwindling contract, which expires almost six months
from now.
Conte said: “The situation with Obi Mikel is simple:
he’s in the squad. He stays with us.
