Ask Conte about my future at Chelsea – Mikel Obi

John Mikel Obi has admitted that his Chelsea future, depends on what manager Antonio Conte decides.
The Super Eagles captain scored one of the goals, as Nigeria beat Algeria 3-1 in a World Cup qualifying match on Saturday . 

But he is yet to play a single minute of club football this season for the Blues.
When asked in the post-match press conference if he would ever play for Chelsea again, Mikel replied: “I’ll wait and see what happens. I’ve spent almost my entire career at Chelsea and I call it my home.

“It’s been 11 years at Chelsea but if it’s time to move on, it’s time to move on.”
He then added tongue-in-cheek: “I don’t know if I’ll ever play again, but if you really want to know I can give you Conte’s number; call him, he should know.”

The 29-year-old whose deal at Stamford Bridge ends at the end of this season, insists he is always ready to play.

“I’ve had a long career because I’ve kept in shape,” he added.

“I’m disciplined, I eat right, I don’t do anything to jeopardise my career.

“I still have my career ahead of me.”
