“I know it is going to be difficult for me to get back into the team because I have missed the whole preseason. The manager obviously has his philosophy of the way he wants to play and I need time to get back into the way he wants to do things. It will be difficult, but it is one challenge that I am looking forward to. Like everyone knows I don’t run away from a challenge,” said Mikel.
