Obi Mikel clears air on being kidnapped before Chelsea move

John Obi Mikel, a former Chelsea player, has dispelled rumors that he was abducted before going to Stamford Bridge from Lyn in 2006.


Chelsea fought Manchester United for Mikel, despite the fact that the midfielder had signed a pre-contract with the Red Devils during Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure.

Lyn spread rumors about Mikel’s disappearance after the club’s general manager, Morgan Andersen, reported him missing.

“Look, I wasn’t really kidnapped. I was just staying away from the public eye, away from the press, making sure no one knew where I was.

“But there was a public announcement in Norway that, if anyone saw me, they should report it to the police, so we had to go and hide. Obviously, United were trying to get hold of me. So was Lyn. There were some tough times. It was like a movie.”
