Chelsea legends Didier Drogba and John Terry have both reacted to their former Chelsea teammate John Mikel Obi’s retirement from a beautiful game of football.

The Nigerian midfielder officially announced his retirement yesterday and is still receiving tributes and salutations from the football fraternity globally. Mikel took to his Instagram page to announce that he has decided to finally hang his boot at age 35.

Mikel retires as one of the most successful Nigerian footballers ever. The former Chelsea, Trabzonspor, Stoke City and Middlesbrough player is one of the most decorated stars.

Drogba took to his social media handles to pay tribute to Mikel. The Ivory Coast legend stated that he and Mikel created great memories while playing for Chelsea as teammates and also in the national team as opponents.

John Terry, in the same fashion, said it was an honour to have played and shared the dressing room with Mikel. He also recalled the beautiful day when the Nigerian scored his first-ever Premier League goal against Fulham.
