Chelsea have raised a banner honoring former Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel at their stadium.



'Taking the Mikel' is inscribed on the banner, which is a tribute to their former midfielder.

It was unveiled in the Matthew Harding stand at Stamford Bridge Stadium, which has a capacity of 40,834.

Mikel Obi appeared in 374 games for the Blues and scored six goals.

With Chelsea, he won the Champions League, the Europa League, the Premier League, three FA Cups, and the Football League Cup (Carabao Cup).

The statement was made on Twitter by Chelsea football fanzine @onlyapound.

He wrote: “Very pleased to feature a couple of photos of the latest banner to adorn the Matthew Harding Stand supplied by my good pal Dash. It’s a tribute to @mikel_john_obi, a player who, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated in the modern era of @ChelseaFC @ John Terry26.”
