Super Eagles skipper Mikel Obi, has revealed that he may be seeking a move away from Chelsea in January, if he is not considered to play at Chelsea.
The 29-year old is yet play any match for the blues, since Antonio Conte took over as coach and he has revealed that he will seek better playing opportunities in January, if this continues.
“I have never been a guy to make excuses, I never shy away from my responsibilities,” Mikel told BBC World Service Sport.
“Yes, people will say ‘he went to the Olympics’ and ‘he didn’t have a pre-season with the team’ and a new manager came in and was probably upset I went to the Olympics and thinks I don’t care about the team.
“I don’t want to make excuses. In the end of the day, I have to keep training hard and trying to change the manager’s mind. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen.
“I will keep doing my best and ready for when called up upon. We will see what happens in January.”
He continued: “I have been a part of the best years of this club. Chelsea never won the Champions League before, I was there and I was the man of the match in the final.
“I have written my name in the history of this football club and I have won loads of trophies. I have played close to 400 games and have no single regret. I have done it all.
“I still want to win more and help the team. Players move on in life but I am relaxed about January. I will speak to the club find the best solution.
“I could say a lot of things which could put me in trouble, but I would rather be quiet.”
