By Amaechi Agbo
Former Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi Monday began training with his new club, Kuwait Sports Club, Bestchoicesport.com.ng understands.
Mikel who joined the club at the beginning of July teamed up with his teammates in the Middle East and they kicked off preparations for the 2021/2022 Kuwait season.
The former Chelsea midfielder completed a surprise move to the Middle East by signing for Kuwaiti Premier League club Al Kuwait SC.
The club announced the signing of the UEFA Champions League winner from the Championship side, Stoke City, who invoked a one-year extension on the 34-year-old’s contract.
But in a surprise move, the former Chelsea and Trabzonspor star penned just a one-year contract that will keep him at his new club for the 2021-22 season.
Al Kuwait finished third in the Premier League last season behind Al-Qadsia and leaders Al-Arabi.
They will hope the arrival of an experienced player in Mikel will help them challenge for the title again even though they have won the top prize on 15 different occasions.
