Mikel Obi discusses his finest Chelsea performance to date.

Former Chelsea midfielder, John Obi Mikel, has revealed his best-ever game for the Blues.

Mikel, who is now retired from professional football, said Chelsea’s 2012 Champions League final win over Bayern Munich was his best-ever game for the Premier League West London club.

Recall that the Nigerian played a key role for Chelsea in the midfield as they defeated Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties in the Champions League final in Germany.

The 2012 Champions League final ended in a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes.

Though the likes of Didier Drogba and Petr Cech grabbed the headlines – understandably so – on that night, it was Mikel who many supporters believe produced the outstanding performance over 120 minutes.

“My best-ever game [Chelsea’s 2012 Champions League final against Bayern],” Mikel was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying.

“I should have won the man of the match but Didier [Drogba] obviously came good and saved the day. I have watched that game a few times since.

“There is nothing better than this,” he added.

Mikel eventually left Chelsea to join China club Tianjin TEDA in 2017.

The 36-year-old has since retired from professional football.
