The West London side defeated Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties in the final, with Mikel playing a pivotal role.

The encounter will give the players chance to meet and reminisce on the memories of that special night in Munich.

Tagged “Legends of Europe”, the game is put together in remembrance of Chelsea legend, Gianluca Vialli who passed away last year.

The Chelsea team will be coached by Roberto Di Matteo and captained by John Terry.

Mikel announced his retirement from active football in September 2022.
