Football: Mikel Finally Hangs Boot At 35

by Oluwamuyiwa Oyedele

Nigerian footballer, John Mikel Obi has retired from football, the former Chelsea midfielder said on Tuesday.

Mikel on his official social media platforms thanked those who supported him to have a successful career.

He said, “There is a saying that “all good things must come to an end”, and for my professional football career, that day is today.

I look back at the past 20 years of my career, and I must say that I am very satisfied with all that I was able to achieve and more importantly the human it has helped shape.

“All of this would not have been possible without the unwavering support of my family, managers, clubs, coaches, teammates and most importantly my ever-loyal fans.

Obi Mikel made one final comeback to England in 2020 for Stoke until his departure for Kuwait SC a year later.

The Chelsea hero had been a free agent since last November until his decision to roll credits on his career.
