Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has departed Trabzonspor just days after criticising the Turkish football authorities for not suspending the season despite the spread of coronavirus.
The ex-Nigerian international only joined the club as a free agent last summer, having penned a two-year deal, but has now parted ways with the Super Lig outfit by mutual consent.
Mikel stated that he did not feel comfortable continuing to play during the pandemic, and will give up his remaining wages in order to become a free agent.
The comments came ahead of Trabzonsport’s clash with Istanbul Basaksehir, in which Mikel eventually failed to feature amid reports the midfielder will return home to his family in the UK.
With fixtures still being contested in the Super Lig, the Turkish government confirmed all football matches in the country will take place behind closed doors until the end of April.
Galatasaray striker Radamel Falcao offered his support to Mikel after the social media statement, saying that ‘life is more important than football.’
But Mikel’s decision has resulted in criticism from some Trabzonspor supporters, with the midfielder’s girlfriend choosing to share a shocking message she received on social media.
