Didier Drogba, together with Radamel Falcao, fully backed John Obi Mikel for terminating his contract with Turkey club Trabzonspor.
Mikel decided to leave the club following the Turkish Super Lig’s decision to continue with the competition despite the global outbreak of the Coronavirus. Mikel agreed to end his contract after refusing to play a recent league.
“Words of wisdom,” said Drogba. “You are right John. The life is more important than football,” added Falcao.
It now remains to be seen what the next chapter will be for the 32-year-old Mikel. The Jos-born player enjoyed his best careers years in the English Premier League with Chelsea where he earned over 200 appearances and two Premier League titles.
