- John Obi Mikel considering joining Egyptian Premier League club
- The 33-year-old midfielder has been clubless since leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor in March
- Mikel left on mutual consent after furiously protesting against endangering players' lives in the face of COVID-19
Former Champions League winner John Obi Mikel admits he is considering playing for an Egyptian Premier League club.
The Nigerian midfielder has been without a club after parting ways with Turkish League side Trabzonspor midway into his contract.
He left the club on mutual consent according to the reports following his protests against the FA over their failure to endanger the lives of players in the face of coronavirus.
Mikel has since then been linked with a move to join Brazilian outfit Botafogo but it is unclear if the South America club would go through with the deal.
Internacional have also shown interest in the Champions League and Europa League winner but nothing is concrete yet.
“I never ruled anything out,” Mikel told ON Sports.
“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 also talked about ex Chelsea team-mate, Mohamed Salah: "When Salah came to Chelsea, he was a young boy, but he had a nice personality and everyone loved him, he was very disciplined.
”We were close friends, talking a lot and joking a lot, he was a good friend.” “I believed in his development, but frankly I did not imagine that he would reach the quality that he has now,” he added.
Legit.ng earlier reported that football fans and pundits were stunned when Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah arrived training with cracked car windscreen.
It came as a big surprise to those who saw the arrival of the Egypt international as some were wondering what could have happened with his windscreen.
Mohammed Salah is a player whose love for good cars knows no bound as he has many in his garage in England and also in his home country.
