Mikel believes Mourinho's winning mentality is crucial to Chelsea
John Obi Mikel believes Jose Mourinho's winning attitude will lead to another era of success at Chelsea. "This game is all about winning and the manager that brought this transformation of winning to this club is back now," Mikel told Chelsea TV.
"He still has the same idea of how he wants us to approach every game with a win, win mentality.
"I came to this club at 18 and he made me to think 'win, win, win'. Whenever you see him, you see motivation.
"He walks around the place full of energy, full of confidence, and really, he is not doing it for himself but for you to see how he goes about his business.
"He wants you to emulate that into yourself and start behaving in a similar way.
"This is because confidence can lead you to so many places that you never thought you could go and it is just brilliant to work with him again.
"And now that he is back, we hope that we can continue winning the trophies that we won since he left."
