John Mikel Obi has been added to the list of former Chelsea players that will face Bayern Munich in a legends match.

The highly anticipated encounter is billed for the Stamford Bridge on September 9.

The legends match is put together in honour of Gianluca Vialli, a former Chelsea forward and manager.

Mikel’s former teammate, Ramirez was also added to the team on Thursday.

The duo, integral to the Blues  maiden conquest of Europe’s biggest prize, will join fellow 2012 heroes John Terry, Florent Malouda, Salomon Kalou and Michael Essien, as well as manager Roberto Di Matteo, for the game in honour of Gianluca Vialli.

Other former players confirmed to be taking part include Gianfranco Zola, Claude Makelele, Carlo Cudicini, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Frank Leboeuf. It promises to be a very special evening indeed. READ ALSO:
