Covid-19 has had a lot of effects on world’s activity, and even our beloved football hasn’t been spared from this pandemic.

Former Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi has cut his ties with Turkish side Trabzonspor, as he claimed that the club was insensitive to the players’ plight in spite of the deadly virus.

However, Trabzonspor in a statement have slammed the Nigerian for being untruthful in his interviews, saying the club had taken precautionary methods to keep players and staff safe.

“Mikel’s claim regarding our club does not reflect the truth. As Trabzonspor Club, we have taken all our precautions against Covid-19 in a short time,” Trabzon based website 61saat.com reported.

“In line with the information provided by the Ministry of Health, our club’s health committee informed our players. Facilities, fields and our stadium was disinfected. Restrictions were introduced to the facilities, including footballers’ own guests. Staff members were also told to work from home in line with the social distance understanding.”

“Mikel, unfortunately, preferred to go in spite of these precautions and common sense.

“Mikel said he wanted to be with his family in England.”

The English Premier League has been shut down since early March, and there are hopes that the league will resume on April 30.

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.

    I THINK THE REAL REASON MIKEL LEFT IS THE RACISM HE FACED IN TURKEY. THERE WAS VERY LITTLE THE CLUB WOULD DO TO CURB THE RACISM DIRECTED TOWARDS MIKEL. THIS WAS THE ONLY WAY OUT FOR HIM TO LEAVE TURKEY WITHOUT ALLUDING TO RACISM.
