I Want To Be Your Assistant, Mikel Tells Chelsea’s Lampard

Former Nigeria captain John Mikel Obi has said he jokingly told former teammate and current Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, that “I want to be his assistant” when he retires.

Mikel and Lampard were teammates for close to a decade, winning several trophies together.

“I am very happy for Frank. When we were playing at Chelsea, we were expecting that John Terry and him would be very good managers, but we were expecting Terry to reach that level first. But Lampard made a big step. His arrival at Chelsea means the club are caring for their legends,” Mikel told Sport Witness.


“I joked with him after he got the Chelsea job that I want to be his assistant when I retire. I hope he will be successful at Chelsea for many more years. I also want to see John Terry in similar jobs in future because he was our leader on the pitch.”
