John Obi Mikel has confirmed his move to Chinese Super League club Tainjin TEDA in an open letter to Chelsea fans. The 29-year-old has called time on his 10-year stint at Stamford Bridge to become the latest Premier League player who has made the move to China. Mikel joins Tainjin TEDA, who finished 11th in the Chinese Super League last season, on a free transfer as his contract with Chelsea was due to expire at the end of the season. During his time at Chelsea, Mikel won two Premier League titles, four FA Cup trophies and the Champions League in 2012. In his letter to fans on social media, Mikel thanks Chelsea fans for their support and claims he has played alongside ‘some of the best manager and players in the world’ at Stamford Bridge.

You could have said the same when he exsusted enough wealth trying to clean up the mess of your lame duck government.

Or you may have been consumed by mal-education of your ancestors to think right.
