Kuwait Sporting Club terminates Mikel Obi’s contract

Ex-Chelsea midfielder, John Obi Mikel’s contract with Kuwait Sporting Club has been terminated.

Kuwait SC made the announcement in a post via their Instagram account on Thursday.

The former Super Eagles captain was appointed captain of Kuwait SC shortly after agreeing to terms with the club.

Mikel had played for Chelsea, Middlesbrough and Stoke City, Trabzonspor and Tianjin Jinmen Tiger in the past.

He recorded 372 appearances in all competitions during a ten-and-a-half-year stint at Stamford Bridge.
