Mikel Throws Tantrum Back at Terry


Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi has reacted to John Terry’s banter that he is the sleepy one in Chelsea’s dressing room.

According to Mikel, another one of his country man should hold that title and it is Victor Moses.

Although Terry had claimed Mikel is the sleepy one last season, Mikel’s reaction is coming at a time Moses is back to the Chelsea squad after a loan spell at West Ham last season.

Terry told Goal.com in April: “Obi Mikel sleeps everywhere we go, on the coach, it could be for a five minute journey and you look around and he is asleep.”

But Mikel hit back at Terry’s cheeky comments to tell his side of the story.

He told Goal.com: “I don’t know where he (Terry) got that from, but I don’t sleep in the bus. He definitely got it wrong. I think for the ‘sleepy one’ I will have to go with Victor because when you think he is there, he is gone.”

Terry gave a light-hearted look into the inner sanctum of the Blues’ changing room back in April, picking out ‘The Angel’, ‘The Romantic’, ‘The Toughest’, ‘The Strongest’, ‘The coolest’ in the Chelsea squad amongst others.
