John Mikel Obi has revealed he has a reservation over the decision to make Reece James Chelsea captain.

James was announced as the new captain at Stamford Bridge after the summer departure of Cesar Azpilicueta, who previously held the role.

James has however not really featured much this season due to injury problems, but beyond that, ex-Chelsea midfielder, Mikel, also thinks that the 23-year-old is not vocal enough on the pitch.

“I know Reece James is a captain and he’s a fantastic player, but when I watch him on the pitch he’s not vocal,” Mikel told talkSPORT.

“I remember when John Terry used to come up to a player and grab you by the neck and be like ‘wake the F up, we’re about to lose a game here’.

“I don’t see that here. Nobody even talks to each other. Nobody corrects, nobody screams at each other. How are you going to win games?”
