TEDA Coach – Mikel To Return In Ten Days, Could Have Missed Four Weeks At Chelsea For Same Injury


Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi will return back to action in ten days time according to his coach Jamie Pacheo, who claimed it could have been longer if he was still at Chelsea.


Mikel picked up a knock in their last game, where he played as a central defender and will miss this weekend game against Lifan, due to the knock.

Mikel’s coach at Chinese side Tianjin TEDA revealed that the 29 year old will undergo traditional Chinese acupuncture treatment which will hasten up his recovery.

The treatment involves the use of thin needles which are inserted into the body as alternative means of curing injuries in China. An ancient tradition which is still been practiced by the Chinese.

” If he was at Chelsea, the injury may be for about three or four weeks, but in TEDA he will resume training in ten days time, and simply fast as well”, Pacheo told sports.enorth.com.cn
