NIGERIA BOSS GERNOT ROHR BLASTS CHELSEA MANAGER ANTONIO CONTE FOR "PUNISHING" JOHN OBI MIK


Chelsea's boss Antonio Conte has been accused of freezing John Obi Mikel out at Chelsea as “punishment” for going to the summer Olympics with Nigeria.

Claims Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr who has hit out at the midfielder’s treatment.

Mikel along with his Super Eagle teammates clinched bronze medal in Rio, he has yet to play a single game for Conte since his arrival at Stamford Bridge.

It also emerged in the past week that Chelsea will not be renewing the Nigeria captain’s contract when it expires at the end of the season.

Mikel left Conte’ pre-season camp to play for his country but has found himself out in the cold ever since.

Gernot Rohr said: "There is a reason why Mikel is not playing for Chelsea right now and that reason is because he played for Nigeria at the Olympics. He was punished for that.

"I cannot punish a player who loves his country and shows that he loves the Green jersey. I am not happy with what is happening to Mikel at his club because he is my captain.

"I spoke about this with Mikel and the club’s technical director [Michael Emenalo]. Mikel is training very well and he plays games in training with the big players at Chelsea.”

Conte is known for is wild-mad celebrations.

My opinion- Antonio Conte is only doing what is best for his team and his lucrative job, because he knows if he should fail like Arsenal he will be gone after just one season.

Conte is very arrogant he thinks he is the best manager in the Premier League right now, but until he beats Jose Mourinho's four title record, then he can flaunt his annoying pride.
