Nigerian football legend, John Obi Mikel has congratulated his former club-side, Trabzonspor for winning theTurkish Cup for the 2019/20 season.
Mikel’s compatriot, Anthony Nwakaeme was an unused substitute as Trabzonspor ended their 10-year trophy wait by beating Alanyaspor in the Turkish Cup final on Wednesday.
A goal in each half from Abdulkadir Omur and Alexander Sorloth in the 25th and 90th minutes respectively helped Trabzonspor to secure
a 2-0 win over Alanyaspor.
Mikel and the club’s chiefs had issues back in March as a result of the Coronavirus pandemich crisis whereby the Nigerian wanted the side too stop playing games.
But the club wanted the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner to continue playing for them which he refused and they were forced
to terminate his contract.
Inspite of the obvious bad blood between Mikel and Trabzonspor, the former Chelsea star has gone on the social media to congratulate
the club for their cup win.
The 33-year-old on Thursday posted on his verified Instagram handle: “Congratulations, Trabzonspor on winning the Cup final. well done, boys and the city deserve it”
The last time Trabzonspor won silverware was in 2010 when they won both the Turkish Cup and the Turkish Super Cup. Mikel is still
unattached despite being linked with a few clubs.
