Blue at heart, Mikel thumbs up Hazard on Chelsea milestone


Mikel moved from Chelsea to Tianjin Teda for free but earns a whooping

Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi has congratulated Chelsea’s talisman and Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard for reaching 200 appearances for the Blues in the English premier League on Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Mikel 30′ who plays for Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda is one of Chelsea greats to have racked up over 200 league games for the London based side, and was thrilled for his former teammate for reaching the milestone.

“Congratulations to Eden Hazard on joining me in the Chelsea FC 200 club, 200 Premier League appearances, well deserved,” Mikel wrote on his Instagram page.

Hazard joins the likes of Chelsea legends John Terry, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Dennis Wise, Didier Drogba, Mikel, Ashley Cole and Gianfranco Zola to reach that figure in a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel has featured in the two matches played so far by Tianjin Teda since the league commenced for a new season this month, registering one draw and a defeat.

Mikel is preparing to lead the Super Eagles out against Poland and Serbia in what would be World Cup tune up friendlies in two weeks time.
