Mikel Obi and Trabzonspor have parted ways by mutual consent.
Trabzonspor announced the departure of the former Chelsea midfielder on Tuesday.
In the summer of 2019, Mikel joined
Trabzonspor on a two-year contract with the option of a further year.
The 32-year-old played a pivotal role in helping Trabzonspor get to the top of the super league.
The former super eagle’s captain made 19 appearances for the Turkish club.
In a statement released by the Trabzanspor “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,”
This may be related to Mikel criticism of the Turkish football league for not suspending the super league season in the wake of coronavirus pandemic.
The former super eagle skipper stated he does not feel comfortable during the Covid-19 outbreak and called for the suspension of the league.
