Mikel blow for Chelsea
Thursday 6 May 2010
Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel will miss the FA Cup final against Portsmouth on 15 May after undergoing minor knee surgery.
The Nigerian, who will also miss the final Premier League game of the season against Wigan on Sunday, has not played for three weeks because of the injury.
A Chelsea statement read: "John Mikel Obi has undergone minor knee surgery and will take no part in Sunday's final Barclays Premier League match nor the FA Cup final.
"The operation is due to an injury suffered when fouled by Bolton's Kevin Davies last month and subsequently led to Mikel's early substitution at Tottenham the following match."
I just read this story and it has made me worried. Will he be fit in time for the world cup?
