Captain of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, John Mikel Obi, says he is fit to play the remaining twelve league matches for Tianjin TEDA in the Chinese Super League.
Mikel has been training with his teammates for over three weeks since he fully recovered from an hip injury that kept him out of action for three months but has not featured since then.
The former Chelsea star, said he could make the difference for the club which is currently placed fourteenth in the sixteenth team league format with two points above the relegation zone.
Tianjin TEDA have not recorded a win in their last seven league games.
Mikel has made three appearances for Tianjin Teda and has scored one goal. His last game was in its two- nil victory over Chongqing Lifan in April in a Chinese Super League clash.
