Former Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi has cut ties with Turkish side Trabzonspor after a fallout with the club president, following his criticism of the league games that were ongoing in Turkey, when the world has since been battling the coronavirus outbreak.

Mikel will be a free agent when football resumes, and when asked about his future, he revealed that he’s keen on a return to England, but prioritises that everything gets to normalcy first.

“I hope (there will be offers from elsewhere). I hope I will be back out on the pitch once everything is settled and everyone is back at work, everything is back to normal. I want to be out there as soon as possible. But we have to defeat this virus first,” he told the Athletic.

“I am looking forward to my next chapter. I don’t know where it’s going to be. I want to be closer to home, somewhere in England maybe. But we will see what happens. The best option is where I will go.

“In the meantime, my girls will help keep me fit! I will be in the gym too and if I can, I will do some running outside.”

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.
