Former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has offered an insight on why he converted John Mikel Obi from an attacking midfielder to a defensive midfielder during his reign at the Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho and Mikel worked together during the former’s reign at the London club.
Mikel arrived at Chelsea in 2006 and was regarded as one of the best young playmakers in the world at that time.
The 36-year-old was, however, changed to a defensive midfielder by the Portuguese.
Mourinho, now in charge of the Serie A side, AS Roma, revealed the reason behind his action.
