Mikel Obi Suffers Injury at Tianjin Teda

Super Eagle captain Mikel Obi may have suffered an injury after his missed Tianjin Teda’s clash in the Chinese League over the weekend.

The former Chelsea man wore a bandage at training with the club after fracturing his wrist during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Last season, the Olympic bronze medalist had surgery and missed some part of the season.

Despite making his first appearance back at the club following a match ban due to accumulated cards, Concise News gathered that the Nigerian might have had a relapse of the wrist fracture.

It was gathered that Mikel missed the game as a precaution with the side’s victory shotting them to ninth place on the table, with 18 points, after 14 matches.

He is said to have sustained the injury in his first game after the World Cup break, against Chongqing Dang on July 21, in which he was in action for 90 minutes and played on the right side of a three-man midfield.

Afterward, Mikel did not train with his Tianjin Teda teammates all through the past week because his knees were swollen.
