Nigeria captain and Tianjin TEDA midfielder Mikel Obi has been impressed with the level of coaching under the Chinese Super League club's new boss Jaime Pacheco, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Pacheco, a former Portuguese international, joined the club in 2016, while Mikel signed on from Chelsea in January.
Mikel signed a three-year deal and will reportedly earn 140,000-per-week.
"I do not think there’s a lot of difference in the level of coaches now," Mikel told NetEase Sports.
"I think Pacheco is a high-level coach and he was a very good player [for Porto and Portugal].
"Training is done very well, with a very high level.”
