Mikel set to return for Cameroon clash
Super Eagles’ Captain, John Mikel Obi has hinted that he will be back in action for his Chinese Super League club, Tianjin Teda in few weeks, and later for Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Mikel has been out of action for the past three months after undergoing surgery to repair the abdominal strain he sustained while playing for Tianjin Teda.
The former Chelsea midfielder shared a short video of him via his Instagram page @mikel_john_obi as he did a ball work, pacing in different directions with a set of cones.
“Few more weeks and I am back on the pitch with my boys #TianjinTeda #SuperEagles #recovery,” Mikelwrote beneath a video he posted on his Instagram page.
Mikel’s last appearance for Tianjin Teda was in their 2-0 victory over Chongqing Lifan in April in a Chinese Super League clash.
He missed his club side’s last 13 games and was sorely missed for the Super Eagles who lost 2-0 to South Africa in Uyo in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
