Super Eagles and Tianjin Teda Captain Mikel Obi has undergone a successful surgery in London after leaving China to seek medical attention.
Mikel had missed three games for Tianjin Teda due to an abdominal strain.
Chelsea Football Club has granted the ex blues midfielder free access to their facilities to aid his rehabilitation and full recovery.
With Mikel currently sidelined, he could miss Nigeria’s AFCON qualifier against South Africa in June.
The Super Eagles captain was however more concerned about missing games for his club side Tianjin Teda whom he joined in the winter transfer window this year from Chelsea.
Mikel wrote on his twitter handle :
Surgery went well, rehab next… can’t wait to be back ⚽️👊🏽 shame I can’t be on the pitch fighting with my team #TianjinTEDA #TEDAFightingFightingFighting.
