Chelsea Fans Will Love What Boro Supporters Think About Mikel

John Obi Mikel spent 11 years at Chelsea but he is already having an impact at Middlesbrough despite being there for less than a month.

The midfielder made a shock return to England in January when he signed for the Championship side, and even though he has only made two appearances the fans have already taken them to their hearts.

The 31-year-old left the Blues in 2017 having won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, a League Cup, the Europa League and the Champions League.

He made the move to Tianjin TEDA in China, however returned to link up with Tony Pulis in the North East and in his two games so far Boro have drawn one and then beat West Brom 3-2 on Saturday.

And Boro fans have already come up with a chant for the Nigerian midfielder who was so influential at Chelsea.

“John is a beast, he’s just a beast. He’ll need the games. The game at West Brom will be quicker than what he’s played in for a long time,” Pulis said on Saturday to Teeside Live.

“He’ll certainly have to be on his game because they’ll be bright, the forwards that they’ve got having brought (Jacob) Murphy in and the lad from Swansea (Jefferson Montero), they’ve got the pace and the power that you need.
