Chelsea Fans: Sell Mikel Now!

Chelsea Fans: Sell Mikel Now!

By James Agberebi:

Some fans of Chelsea have asked for Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi to be sold following the sale of Oriol Romeu to Southampton on Wednesday.

According to, the fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure over the sale of Romeu, positing that instead Mikel should have been the one to be shown the door.

One of the fans, @_flemzeey, praised Romeu while wondering how Mikel is still at the club. He wrote:  "Mikel is still at Chelsea but Chelsea is selling Romeu….. Watch that boy become a big name in EPL in 2 years time #CFC."

Another fan, @CFC__Talk, added:  "Good move for Romeu hopefully can get his form back, personally I prefer him over Ramires and Mikel but I'm not manager #CFC." 

A rather disappointed @jescfc was blunt, writing: "Rather have kept Oriol Romeu and sold Mikel instead. Astute purchase by #SaintsFC. Nevertheless, reported £7m is decent business for #CFC."

Unhappy @HarryHail moaned: "The saints get a great talent in Romeu and we are stuck with Mikel for another season #CFC #saintsfc."

Romeu joined Chelsea from Bracelona in 2011 but injuries and loan spells restricted his appearances for the Blues to just 33.
He was on the bench for Chelsea's 2012 Champions League final win, but spent the last two seasons on loan at Valencia and then Stuttgart.
Mikel has been at Chelsea since joining as a teenager in 2006.

    Jose is not a liar I see mikel as a Chelsea captain

  • These so call Chelsea fans are just fans without reasoning for themselves. I am not a fan of any club for the record so I am talking as a neutral. Mikel will never be sold or loaned. I have commented on this matter once and my analysis was this: The owner of Chelsea is a RUSSIA. The person running Chelsea for him is a Russian woman. Mikel’s girlfriend is a Russian. What I am still trying to find out is what is(are) the relationship between this beauty of Mikel’s heart and/or the owner/madam caretaker. One reason I think may account for Mikel’s stay in Chelsea despite his very poor performance is that this friend of Mikel might have been going to talk to her country people anytime any attempt at selling or loaning him out. Mikel love it. So all these fans praying for Mikel’s move should change their prayer point to “let Mikel have the mind and strength to work harder to dislodge those who have taken over Mikel’s position,” eg Matic, Fabrigas. Na my opinion be that.

  • We know that Mikel is earning big in Chelsea without kicking ball. But the big question is, is this good for
    his football career? But before our prayers could be answered, let Mikel himself make the first step by
    working hard enough to dislodge others.

  • mikel is better than matic. He is indeed one of us. Rather matic should leave
