Former Super Eagles captain and Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder, Mikel John Obi is homesick following the strained relationship between him and his partner.
According to AOIFootball.com a close source to the family revealed that the player misses home and could be on his way out of Trabzonspor before the end of the season.
“Honestly, things are not going on well with Mikel. He has been withdrawn of late as the situation with his family keeps getting tough.
“Mikel is really home sick, his family have revealed that they won’t come to Turkey again and it has really affected him. His daughters say they want him back and I think that will almost certainly mean he could leave before the expiration of his contract. Besides also there is no international school with English cirrocumulus there for his kids to attend which is very very important to Mikel and his wife plus the kids will miss the camaraderie with their peers in school,” the source revealed.
Meanwhile, the former Super Eagles and Chelsea midfielder remains mute on the new development, although there are concerns it could affect his long term future with the Super Lig outfit.
The 32-year-old has made four appearances for the Trabzon based club since joining them on a free transfer after the expiration of his contract with Championship side Middlesbrough.
