“I Will Hang My Boots in China” – Mikel Obi
Nigerian Super Eagles’ Skipper, John Mikel Obi who seems to be having a swell time in China has said that if things continue to go this way, he might retire at the club.
Mikel signed a three-year deal with the Chinese Super League club currently training in Malaga, Spain sequel to his era-end at Chelsea.
“Of course, I want to stay in a team for a long time, I left Chelsea after eleven years, I hope to stay in TEDA for a long time, not one or two seasons,” Mikel said to Netease Sports.
“If the club will not let me go, I hope to stay until the end of my career, TEDA will be my last stop.”
Mikel scored his first goal for his new club in their 6-2 loss to German side, St. Pauli yesterday.
His goal came off a header from a well delivered free kick, which left the goalkeeper of St. Pauli stranded in the post as the ball flew into the net.
We hope this is the begining of a good era for him.
