Communication around the Chelsea camp has improved, says Mikel Obi.

Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi says the mood around the Blues camp has been better since the arrival of interim manager Guus Hiddink.

Speaking to BBC's Match of the Day, the Nigerian, who has become a regular under Hiddink, said the mood at Chelsea has changed for good.

"It's the way he communicates with the players and maybe that's what the players felt they didn't get from the previous manager," he said.

"Sometimes players - not just because they're not playing - you need to communicate with them. You need to speak to them and don't just ignore them because players like to be communicated to.

"This is what [Hiddink] has brought into the football club. In some ways you barely know he is in there, he is that calm and relaxed."
