London - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has named John Obi
Mikel in Chelsea’s 23 man squad for the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League.
Mikel, who was reported to be heading out of Stamford
Bridge, saw a move to Besiktas among other clubs fail, and will now remain at
the club for another one season.
Chelsea will be competing in Group G against FC Porto,
Dinamo Kyiv and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
The Nigeria international has played just one of Chelsea’s
four Premier League matches this season, coming in as a substitute for Pedro
Rodriguez in the Blues’ 3-2 away win at West Bromwich Albion.
