The Technical Adviser for the Nigeria national football team, Genort Rohr has revealed the next move to be taken by Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel.
The Franco-German tactician confirmed that Mikel is to leave Chelsea Football Club in January having been frozen out by Coach Antonio Conte.
The Daily Trust reported that Rohr told newsmen in London that the Chelsea midfielder had to leave the club because “he cannot stay in a club he is not playing.”
“He is moving come January transfer window. He cannot stay in a club he is not playing. So he has to move,” Rohr said, adding that some Super Eagles players who are not playing at their clubs may alsoleave the clubs.
Mr. Rohr spoke shortly after a meeting with Nike officials in London in connection with Super Eagles official kits.
The meeting was also attended by NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, Mikel Obi and Eagles centre forward, Odion Ighalo, among others.
Only recently, Ighalo had canvassed for Watford to sign on Mikel but the Hornets’ boss Walter Mazzarri has given his verdict on calls by his Nigerian striker to bring Mikel from Chelsea to the Vicarage Road.
