Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has confessed to resorting to mind games as the club won the Champions League on Saturday.
The Blues won their first European Cup after beating Bayern Munich in a penalty shootout at the Allianz Arena. The Germans had the chance to win the game in extra-time but Petr Cech saved Arjen Robben's penalty, and Mikel admits he had a role in the outcome.
"I told him [Robben], 'Petr Cech knows where you are going to kick it'," said Mikel.
"I just told Robben that he is going to miss it. You know, we just do that sometimes as players.
"I think when the penalty was missed, we kind of believed that this trophy was going to be ours."
The Nigerian moved to Stamford Bridge in 2006.
