Stoke City manager Michael O’Neill says it was a delight working with John Obi Mikel following his move to Kuwaiti club Kuwait SC.
Mikel joined the Asian club on a one-year contract after his contract with Stoke was cancelled on mutual consent.
The 34-year-old former Nigerian international midfielder still had a year to run on his existing contract with the Potters.
He made 41 league and cup appearances for the Club last season.
And speaking on Mikel’s exit O’Neill said: “Although John triggered the second year of his contract, we always had an agreement in place whereby we would let him leave if a significant overseas opportunity came along.
“John is a fantastic professional and was a huge presence for us last season both on and off the field, particularly with the young players in our first-team squad.
“I really enjoyed working with him and would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his contribution and wish him every success for the future.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
