Following the forth coming winter/summer transfer window, Mikel Obi has admitted that he will respect the decision of the club and it’s manager Antonio Conte if they decide not bring him back to the Chelsea first team.

Mikel who revealed this to journalists during an interview, said Chelsea as a club is bigger than him and whatever decision the management comes up with at the end of the day, he would respect that.

  “I hope I will get some playing time against West Ham [in the EFL Cup], but it is down to the manager.”


Mikel continued:

“He has been open and honest with me. I respect him for that. He has explained the situation and I totally understand. When you have been at a club for a long time, these things happen where a club wants to move forward. 

Obi  who joined Chelsea in 2006 also expressed his willingness to remain in the team, saying that  he ”  works twice as hard every day and it’s because he appreciates this club.”

“I just have to be professional, work as hard as I can to try and get into the team. I work twice as hard every day and it’s because I appreciate this club. I have been here a long time, have a lot of trophies and memories that will never go away. If I don’t get back in the side, I will respect it. I always respect the football club’s decision. The club is more important than me.”
