Chelsea great John Mikel Obi completed a move to Chinese club Tianjin TEDA in January, and he has been handed his favourite jersey number, as the Chinese Super League resumes this weekend.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria captain will wear the number 10 jersey for Tianjin TEDA, the number he wears in his national team.

Mikel left Chelsea to join Tianjin TEDA, as he couldn’t get game time under Antonio Conte; he didn’t feature in any game under the Italian.

Tianjin TEDA begin their campaign in the Chinese topflight when they face Shandong Luneng Jinan in the Olympic Sports Center Stadium on March 4.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
