Sports Chelsea: Mikel Obi Throws a Jibe at ex Boss Jose Mourinho

Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi has thrown a jibe at his former coach Jose Mourinho, saying his new boss Guus Hiddink doesn't poke his nose into his players' business.

Speaking about the transition from Mourinho to Hiddink, Mikel said there's been a change.

"From day one, since Guus has come in, the atmosphere has changed,” the 29-year-old Mikel said.

“The players feel more relaxed, people know what their jobs are and people are getting on with their jobs in a more relaxed way. And a way they can perform very well.

“He has given responsibility to people and expects them to thrive on it and make sure they do it in way where they feel comfortable. I think that is what the players are showing now.

“When you come into the training ground, the players are more relaxed, he doesn’t get into people’s business, he gets on with his own thing and players feel very comfortable and know exactly what to do so when he gets on the training pitch, he doesn’t need to speak.

“We all know what he wants and it is the same when we go into a game.”

The Nigeria star said like most of the Chelsea players he will want Dutchman Hiddink to stay beyond the end of the current season.
