Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has come out to categorically denied rumours that he is set to return to Chelsea as a coach or an assistant to the first-team.

OwnGoalNigeria ran a story that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich promised to bring him back in a coaching capacity but Mikel said it was all lies and made-up stories.

“Honestly I do not know where such stories are emanating from,” Mikel said.

“I’m surprised at the news because no such discussion or meetings have taken place between me and the club’s hierarchy as regards to any form of coaching job.

“Chelsea will forever be like home to me and if such contact were made I would gladly make it known but for now they are all lies and rumours”

Mikel, who is currently playing in Turkey for Trabzonspor made 372 appearances for Chelsea.
