Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has tipper Super Eagles midfielder, John Obi Mikel as a potential captain for the Blues after John Terry.
The 28 year old, who was linked with a move away from the Bridge this summer joined the London club from Lyn Oslo with over 224 caps and four goals to his credit.
Terry’s career with the London side is gradually winding down, it means the English champions will have to select a new skipper and Mourinho feels Obi – the team’s second longest serving player may just be accorded with the honour of wearing the skipper’s armband.
“Mikel is, after John, the guy with most years of Chelsea,” Mourinho told Dailymail.co.uk
“I think (Cesc) Fabregas has personality for a captain too. Eden is coming with big status now and was voted one of the top 10 players in Europe last year.
“In my opinion he should be in the top three not in the top 10. Let’s see what is going to happen but we have these people. But let’s say John and Branislav are our captains and the others are ready to come,” he said.
