John Mikel Obi has revealed that he would be open to one day joining his former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard in Major League Soccer.
Lampard has been influential for New York City FC, scoring 18 goals as Patrick Vieira’s side sit just two points off the top of the Eastern Conference standings.
Mikel has been a Chelsea player for more than ten years and recently told Goal that he will talk to other clubs in January if he isn’t offered a new deal, but he also confessed he may one day play football in the United States.
“There was absolutely no doubt that Frank wouldn’t go out there and succeed,” Mikel said.
“I am happy that he is back to his best, doing what he loves to do and, one day, who knows, I may go over there and play with him, or play against him.
“The first few months or so, it was a bad period for him and he didn’t have the best position and hopefully I will get back into the team.”
