Mikel Obi will soon quit Chelsea because he is not part of the plans of manager Antonio Conte, according to coach Samson Siasia who worked with the Nigeria skipper at the recent Rio Olympics.
“He is ready to quit Chelsea because he said this man (Antonio Conte) does not have anything for him and that was what he told me before he came down to the Olympics,” Siasia revealed.
“That was why they bought (N’Gola) Kante.
“It will be better for him to leave now because he has done very well after 11 years at Chelsea, not even Didier Drogba did not last that long there.
“He already has a British passport and two girls, he has done very well and will now leave.”
Mikel’s contract at ‘The Blues’ runs out next year and he has yet to be listed by Chelsea after 16 rounds of the Premier League this season.
He has already been linked with several top clubs across Europe and beyond.
