Tianjin TEDA captain, John Obi Mikel, has expressed his eagerness to return to action for club and country.
The midfielder underwent surgery last month in London and has missed TEDA’s last six games.
However, Mikel Obi has posted a picture of himself in the gym on his Instagram page, with a caption suggesting he is well on his way to recovery.
“On the road to recovery. Can’t wait to get back on the pitch with TEDA and my national team,” he wrote on Saturday.
The former Chelsea midfielder is likely to miss the Super Eagles’ 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa on June 10.
