Mikel Obi Congratulates Eden Hazard On Chelsea Milestone

Mikel Obi and Edin Hazard

Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has hailed the Belgian international Eden Hazard after reaching a landmark at the London outfit.

Mikel and Hazard were teammates at Stamford Bridge from when the Belgian joined in 2012 to the departure of the Nigerian in 2017.

Hazard made his 200th Premier League appearance for the current English Champions in their 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, March 10.

The Super Eagles captain posted a message on his Instagram to congratulate Hazard. The message reads, “Congratulations to @hazardeden_10 on joining me in the @ChelseaFC 200 club    200 @premierleague appearances, well deserved.”

Mikel made 249 appearances for Chelsea in the Premier League, and a combined total of 368 appearances in all competitions.

Hazard has now joined Mikel and other greats who have made 200 and above league appearances for Chelsea.

Chelsea will be hoping Hazard stays on to get more appearances as there have been fears that he could join La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer.
