Ex Chelsea Star Mikel – No Much Difference Between Conte & Coach Of Tianjin Teda


John Obi Mikel is stepping up his preparation for his Chinese Super League debut.

The Nigerian appears to have settled in with his Tianjin TEDA teammates having penned a three-year, £140,000-per-week deal.

Mikel is Tianjin’s star signing and moves after 10 years with Chelsea to boost manager Jaime Pacheco’s side, and the 29-year-old is talking up the level of his and the rest of the league’s coaches.

“I do not think there’s a lot of difference in the level of coaches now,” Mikel told NetEase Sports .

Pacheco is a high-level coach and he was a very good player [for Porto and Portugal].

“Training is done very well, with a very high level.”
