One word about Mikel

I remembered when Chelsea signed John Obi Mikel in July 2006 for £16 million pounds. He was widely tipped to be succesful because of his talent. But he has never really lived up to that expectation of a world class player.
I know playing as a Defencive midfielder might not be his initial position but after plaaying this position for six years, he should have become a world class player.
Most Chelsea fans have been tired of mikel. I'm sure they will be glad seeing him go to galatasary but for me i don't think i want to see him go.
I have always watched Mikel play for his National team so many times and i feel he still has the talent. Watching this ongoing confedrations cup, you can see the performance he put up. He was the 'mata' of Nigeria.
I believe that he can continue this form for Chelsea. Atleast play under Mourinho who changed him to a defensive midfielder. That would be the best for him not a transfer.
