Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel hopes the rift between themselves and Manchester United doesn't spill over this weekend.

Mikel says the year-long John Terry racism scandal has scarred football for long enough.

And the 25-year-old is calling on Chelsea and Manchester United’s stars to put football back on top of the agenda.

Mikel said: “It’s time everything just stopped and we all moved on.

“It’s just a game of football and I think we’ve lost sight of football through all of this.

“Yes there’s a story — but hopefully it will shortly go away and then we get back into football.”
