Dailymail columnist Sami Mokbel who dropped news of unrest in the Chelsea dressing room, has dropped a big hint suggesting players of Chelsea want Manager Antonio Conte to sacrifice N’Golo Kante for Mikel Obi.

Mikel has been frozen out by the manager since his return from the Rio Olympics, a situation which has reportedly turned some of the players against the manager.

Big summer signing N’Golo Kante according to the players appears to have killed a bit of their ability to turn defence to attack due to his passing limitations unlike the Nigerian.

The Nigerian is into the final year of his Chelsea contract after 11 years at the club, and the midfielder has already outlined his intention to try something new in his career if he isn’t offered a contract extension.

Some fans of the club were reportedly signing the midfielder’s name in their loss to Arsenal urging the manager to reinstate the 29 year old into the team to stem the tide of their recent slump.

Branislav Ivanovic post match revelation that players of the team didn’t believe in the manager’s pre match instructions before they were hammered 0-3 by Arsenal, showed the level of distrust between the manager and the players.
