Real reason Mikel Obi ditched Manchester United for Chelsea, explained in details..

πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬ πŸ¦… *John Obi Mikel speaking on the contract he signed with Manchester United and why he  went on to join Chelsea*.

πŸ—£οΈ “After a while, someone from FIFA gave me a phone call. They said, β€˜Listen, we know you’re young and you have these two clubs fighting over you. We can’t decide for you. You can only go where you want. You have to tell us.’

β€œI thought about it for a long time. It was the biggest decision of my life. You know what made my mind up? Chelsea had signed three other players from Nigeria along with me.”

” They were staying with me at the house in London to keep me company. These guys … their lives depended on the decision I was making. If I went to United, they were gone. If I went to Chelsea, they were going to have a career. No matter how long it lasted, that was important to me. Just to give them a chance, you know?”

β€œI chose Chelsea, and four lives changed that day.”
