Mikel open to play in Egyptian Premier League

Former Nigerian captain John Obi Mikel has revealed that he is ready to play in the Egyptian League if the right opportunity presents itself.

Mikel says he is open to all offers that are thrown at him and has left the door open for a potential move to Egypt.

The former Chelsea midfielder terminated his contract with Turkish outfit club Trabzonspor by mutual agreement in March after fears for his safety in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Playing in the Egyptian Premier League? Why not?” Mikel tells OnTimeSports.

“I am a professional footballer and everything is possible. I never ruled anything out.

“My goal is to continue playing football, and I hope I will have the opportunity, I do not reject any offers made to me, but rather study them well until I make the right decision.”

Mikel won 2 premier league titles with Chelsea in his ten years at the club and has more than 90 caps and 7 goals for the Super Eagles.

Since leaving Turkey, Mike is a free agent and was immediately linked with a move to Brazilian side Botafogo.
