Transfers: Mikel Begins Search For New Club
Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel is officially in the labour market to seek for a new job.
After spending two not too eventful years at Chinese club Tianjin Teda, Mikel has officially quit the club and now in the search for a new team.
The 31-year-old told AOIFootball.com that he was thankful for the opportunity with Teda and will always remain a huge fan of the club in the future.
“Yeah it’s true that I have ended my contract with Tianjin, although I had one more year left but I felt the time was right to move on to another challenge.
“I enjoyed my two year’s stay with them and will always cherish the amazing time both on and off the pitch. Just like my previous two clubs, Teda will always remain a part of my and will always be a part of the family too,” Mikel noted.
When quizzed on where he will be playing his football next, the 2013 AFCON winner stated that he is undecided yet and won’t rule out the option of remaining in China or testing another adventure in the middle east especially with the 2019 AFCON just few months away from now.
Aside playing for Lyn Oslo in Norway, Mikel’s only other club is Chelsea where he spent as much as ten years and won a lot of silverwares.
