Super Eagles of Nigeria’s Captain, Mikel Obi has called time with his Chinese club Tianjin Teda, cancelling his contract with the club a year before the agreement between club and player was due to run out, seeking a return to Europe for family reasons.
In an interview with Tianjin TV Sports New Vision program, Mikel said:
“I broke the contract with the club, which means I will leave Teda. As for my next stop, I am not sure yet, maybe I will return to Europe, maybe stay in China. Anyway, I would like to wish the TEDA team good luck next season.”
Mikel performed well for Tianjin Teda in the first half of the 2018 season but struggled with injuries in the second half after representing Nigeria at the World Cup in Russia.
