Mikel seeks to repeat Babayaro feat
Mikel wants to win Super Cup
In 1998, Chelsea parading Nigeria international defender Babayaro beat Real Madrid 1-0 to win their first-ever Super Cup.
And Mikel has now told MTNFootball.com that he hopes he could repeat that feat as ‘The Blues’ battle another Spanish club Atletico Madrid for the prestigious trophy.
Mikel was part of history last season as Chelsea won their first-ever UEFA Champions League trophy and he has now said he wishes to add to that piece of silverware inside the Stade Louis II in Monaco.
“The game will be interesting and tough. Atletico Madrid are Europa League champions, that says a lot about them. They won this same trophy last season and will want to retain it,” Mikel told MTNFootball.com
“But I am looking forward to a good game and victory against them. It would be great for me to win this cup, my first and Chelsea’s second.”
Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, will be aiming to lift this cup for the second time.
Juventus, Anderlecht and Valencia are the teams who have won the trophy twice in history.
