- Mikel Obi made 249 appearances for Premier League club Chelsea between 2006 and 2017

- Mikel has trolled the Gunners as he tells kids that the club plays good football, but do not win trophies
Former Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi has thrown tantrums at Premier League club Arsenal saying the team always play good football, but do not win trophies.
Mikel who played against the Gunners for 11 years having played for Chelsea between 2006 and 2017 trolled the former rival club for their inability to win trophies.
During his time with the Blues, Mikel won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, one FA Community Shield, one UEFA Champions League as well as one UEFA Europa League.
Arsenal last won the Premier League during the 2003/2004 season when they went unbeaten during the entire campaign – a team that was branded 'The Invincibles'.
And now Mikel Obi was spotted giving pep talk to aspiring footballers somewhere in Nigeria. He urged them to be hardworking, saying one day they might see themselves playing for the national team or football clubs.
When the kids mentioned Arsenal, Mikel chuckled and replied:
“Arsenal…they play good football but they don’t win trophies.”
Meanwhile, Mikel has continued to find more ways to excite his lovely daughters after being spotted with two beautiful bicycles.
The 34-year-old midfielder whose current deal with Stoke City expires at the end of this season is currently with his family enjoying the pre-summer holidays.
Although the Nigeria international is unsure what the future holds for him, he is however unfazed with that challenge as he hopes to make every moment with his family count.
Dressed in a sweatshirt and black and white trainers, the former Champions League winner was all smiling while walking on the streets with the two bicycles.
While posting the image on his Instagram page with close to 1 million followers, the midfielder also accompanied it with a message saying: 'Family time now ♀.'
Legit.ng earlier reported that former Nigerian international Victor Moses will leave Premier League club Chelsea on a permanent basis during the forthcoming summer transfer window.
Moses who joined the Blues in 2002 managed 87 appearances for the club where he scored 7 goals. He has been on loan to seven different clubs including Liverpool, Stoke City, West Ham, Fenerbahce, Inter Milan and Spartak Moscow where he currently plays.
The 30-year-old has enjoyed a productive season, contributing three goals and two assists from 18 appearances on either side of midfield.
