Mikel reveals how Terry, Drogba, others scared him when he was 19.




Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder, John Obi Mikel
has recalled his first training at Chelsea Cobham
training ground, when he newly joined in the
summer of 2006 as a 19-year-old.
In an interview on the latest edition of club
magazine, John Mikel Obi, gave an insight into his
role on and life off the football field.

Approaching his 10th year at Chelsea, Mikel said: "I
came into the dressing room that day literally
shaking.
"I saw the players that were in there – the likes of
John Terry, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Claude
Makelele, Geremi, Michael Essien, Michael Ballack,
Andriy Shevchenko – it was crazy. And I was just
19.

"I was shaking the whole day because I couldn't
talk to any of them. I didn't know what to say to
guys like that. They were really nice guys, but it
was scary. It can be tough coming into a dressing
room like that as a younger player. You had to earn
the right to be among them."
