Chelsea supporters began apologizing to Nigeria’s John Obi Mikel after slating him for being at fault for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opener for Paris Saint-Germain’s in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg encounter.
During the first-half of the Champions League tie, Mikel gave away a free-kick when he tripped Lucas which Ibrahimovic slammed home via a deflection from the Nigerian as Chelsea trailed their host.
Within seconds, Chelsea supporters started calling hitting out at the midfielder who has made 354 appearances for the London outfit since making his debut in 2006 and was making his 58th Champions League appearance.
But the Super Eagles star redeemed himself almost immediately when he fired home from a corner to restore parity before the break at The Parc des Princes, securing Chelsea a vital away goal.
Here we bring u some of the excerpts from some Chelsea supporters.
Fuck u mikel
