The Chelsea midfielder has been struggling to shake off the injury after undergoing surgery in recent weeks and has now told his country's football bosses he did not want to put the injury into further risk. "We have dropped Mikel from the World Cup after he told the team he did not want to put his career at risk as his knee injury has yet to fully heal after a recent surgery," team co-ordinator, Emmanuel Attah, told MTN Football.
