Super Eagles Captain, John Obi Mikel, reveals that former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho “killed” him during their time in the English Premier League.

According to Mikel, he said that Mourinho killed him because he got sent off on his first game for the Blues.

The Middlesbrough midfielder said he was quite slow to the pace expected of him by Mourinho in his early days at Stamford Bridge.

The 31-year-old midfielder spent 11 years at Chelsea, winning the Champions League, two Premier League titles and three FA Cups before joining Chinese side, Tianjin Teda, in 2017.

He further said: “Got sent off on my first game. Mourinho killed me. The speed of the game took me a while to understand it,”

“I was a very naughty boy. I’ll get up to speed but I was late to training many times. I was wearing the wrong dress codes.
