Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has welcomed Paul Pogba back to the Premier League in the funniest way possible.

After news of Paul Pogba's suspension emerged today, this John Obi Mikel Tweet may send United fans over the edge.

The club will be without suspended duo Paul Pogba and Chris Smalling for their trip to Bournemouth.

The Red Devils only found out on Wednesday that their £89million world-record signing Pogba would be carrying a one-game ban over from the Coppa Italia final with Juventus.

Chelsea midfielder Mikel almost joined the Manchester outfit before eventually ending up at Mourinho's Chelsea in 2006.

The Nigerian's welcome to Pogba portrays an excellent sense of humour.

However, it's his possibly-forgotten-about nutmeg on the France star that will have supporters (apart from gruff United ones) laughing heartily:

Quality trolling from the Blues enforcer.
