Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has taken time to thank Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi, after the 29-year-old completed a move to Chinese Premier League club, Tianjin TEDA on Friday.
The 47-year-old former Juventus and Italian manager also prayed that Mikel and Oscar’s departure for China will be the last Chelsea would experience.
While addressing a press conference the Italian tactician said “I hope that these offers from China finish with Mikel and Oscar,”.
Although Mikel did not play any competitive game under the Italian manager, but he noted that Mikel was well-loved in the stands at Stamford Bridge and Conte was quick to praise him for that.
Once again the manager reiterated “I want to say thanks to Obi, for this period when he worked with me.”He showed great attitude and I wish him and family the best.
