Should Mikel Leave

If John Obi Mikel stays at Chelsea over the summer, this would be a record that makes him the third longest serving member of the current squad for next season, behind only Petr Cech and John Terry. Despite Chelsea fans having mixed opinions over the talents and effectiveness of Mikel, he has shown a robustness to adapt to the different squad roles that managers have given him over the years. Mikel should be applauded for the way he has accepted his role as part of the team, and his acceptance of not starting regularly.

Mikel has won practically everything you can in club football, with only the European Super Cup and World Club Cup medals missing from his collection. Given this, it may be in his best interests to take a slight step down in level to find regular first team football.

He is currently behind Nemanja Matic in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and may find his position undermined by Kurt Zouma coming forward into a more advanced role as well as the push for Mourinho to develop young talent. Mikel has played a huge part in Chelsea’s history, but for his career it may now be time to be selfish and look at other options.
