Former Super Eagles skipper John Mikel Obi maintains that he gave everything to ensure Trabzonspor won the 2019-2020 Turkish Super Lig title.
After losing the title to Istanbul Basaksehir following a 4-3 capitulation at home to Konyaspor, Trabzonspor fans criticized the management of the club for their handling of the situation involving the former Chelsea man. Some of them believe his departure greatly affected the performance of the team.
Mikel left Trabzonspor after the Turkish Football Federation initially opted against putting the league on hold back in March in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Mikel expressed his desire not to continue playing in those circumstances, and his contract with the club was terminated by mutual consent.
Before Mikel’s departure, Trabzonspor was top of the Super Lig table, and only dropped two points from 19 games that Mikel featured in.
