John Mikel Obi calls on the club's supporters to get behind the team

Super Eagles midfielder John Mikel Obi has warned Chelsea's unhappy supporter about the impact of their negative conduct in the Club’s performance this season. The Blues recovered from a rather dangerous position against Manchester United on Sunday 10 March to keep the defense of the FA Cup alive.
The Blues inspiring comeback in drawing 2-2 with Manchester United in the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Sunday took place amidst several chants about interim manager Rafael Benitez.

Speaking on the issue Mikel says: 'It is natural to lose confidence if things aren't going well.
'And sometimes it doesn't help either when the fans are not happy, when they get at you a bit if you give the ball away. That brings pressure.
'But this is our job. The fans pay to watch and we have a responsibility to give them something back and make sure we play well. Every game we try to do that. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
He also added-'It's really important for us that the fans are behind us. That showed in the second half at Old Trafford.
'Our fans are great fans, the Chelsea fans are great fans, they have always supported us.

Their replay against Man-U is yet to be arranged but before then, the Blues have a Europa League second leg game at home to Steaua Bucharest to tackle this week. All the best guys!!!
