Mikel Obi Quits Chinese Club, Tianjin Teda

Mikel Obi has cancelled his contract with Chinese club Tianjin Teda, a
year before the agreement he had with club was due to run out.

The
Super Eagles captain who is seeking a return to Europe for family
reasons did not travel with the Tianjin Teda first-teamers to Spain for
pre-season training as he is said to be negotiating with the club to
break his contract.

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.”
