John Obi Mikel has revealed why he chose to sign for Chelsea over Manchester United in 2005.

Writing in the Players’ Tribune, he said: “I thought about it for a long time. It was the biggest decision of my life.

“You know what made my mind up? Chelsea had signed three other players from Nigeria along with me. They were staying with me at the house in London to keep me company.

“These guys … their lives depended on the decision I was making. If I went to United, they were gone. If I went to Chelsea, they were going to have a career. No matter how long it lasted, that was important to me. Just to give them a chance, you know? “I chose Chelsea, and four lives changed that day.”
