Mikel Obi: I Want To Be Chelsea's Assistant Coach


CHINA - A declaration has emerged from Chelsea midfielder, and former Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi, that he has the desire to come back to London as an assistant to current Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, the moment he ends his career as a player.

Speaking in an interview with Trabzonspor magazine, Mikel Obi stated that: “I’m very happy for him.

“We knew that Frank Lampard and John Terry would be very important managers, but as teammates we first thought that John Terry would come to this level.

“Frank Lampard took a big step. The fact that the club brought a legendary player to the head of the team was an indication that he was taking great steps towards becoming a family club.

“I met him and wished him success.

“I even told him I was going to be his assistant manager when I retired.

“I hope he will succeed for many years, because it makes me very unhappy to see him leaving Chelsea.”

It would be recalled that Mikel Obi had left the Stamford Bridge in 2017 to seal a move to Tianjin TEDA in China.

Mikel Obi had made a total of 31 appearances, scoring three goals along the line.
