The Nigeria international, John Mikel Obi has
cancelled his contract with the Tianjin Tigers,
although his next destination remains unknown.
John Obi Mikel has confirmed his exit from
Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda. The 31-
year-old joined the Tianjin Tigers in January
2017 from English Premier League club Chelsea
after finding game time difficult to come by
under Antonio Conte.
The former Lyn Oslo midfielder made 31
appearances scoring three goals and
contributing three assists during his two-year
stay with Teda. And on Friday, the Super Eagles
captain affirmed his contract termination with the
Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium outfit, although
his next move is still unknown.
“I broke the contract with the club, which means
I will leave Teda,” Mikel told Tianjin TV Sports
New Vision programme. “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 played his last
game for Tianjin Teda in October 2018 helping
the side to a 4-2 win over Shanghai Shenhua.
Turkish SuperLig side Fenerbahce are believed to
be interested in the midfielder.
