Super Eagles player and former Chelsea player, Mikel Obi has revealed in a recent interview with BBC how erstwhile Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho dealt with him during his time at Chelsea.
According to Mikel Obi, who says Mourinho killed him, he got sent off on his first game for Chelsea. He further revealed that he was always late for training and always mixes up the dress codes.
Mikel revealed that it took him quite some time to get a grip on how things worked at Chelsea and that Mourinho was also not a person to entertain excuses.
I 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.
Mourinho was very firm with me because he wanted me to learn and learn very fast because he brought me in.
With Mourinho, there are no excuses. I was put in a very naughty corner a few times. It took me a while to understand where I am and I had to learn very fast.
