Mikel Parts Ways With  Trabzonspor By Mutual Consent

John Obi Mikel and Trabzonspor have parted ways by mutual consent, the club has announced.

Mikel only joined Black Sea Storm as a free agent on a two-year deal last summer, at the end of his brief stint in the Championship with Middlesbrough.

The 32-year-old played a crucial role in helping Trabzonspor soar to the summit of the Super Lig this season with 19 league appearances.

While no reason was given for the mutual termination of the contract, the club announced the former Chelsea midfielder gave up his remaining wages.

“The professional football player agreement between our company and John Obi Mikel on 30.06.2019 start date 31.05.2021 has been mutually terminated. With a mutual termination agreement, the football player gave up all his forward-looking receivables,” the club announced.

Last Saturday, Mikel criticised Turkish football authorities for not suspending the Super Lig season despite the spread of the coronavirus across Europe .

The former Premier League star stated he does not feel comfortable during the Covid-19 outbreak and called for the season to be cancelled.

    As Igbo People say: Ndubuisi – life (or health) is number one!

    Mikel, you are a Man and a born leader. Leaders make bare their minds regardless if their opinion is a popular one or not.

    You, Mikel, are indeed a true leader. Kudos to you.

    He quite literally put his money where his mouth is. I knew something was amiss when he wasnt in the lineup on Saturday especially after his critical comments.  Mikel has shown to be a man of principle.
