English Championship club, Stoke City, have signed former Super Eagles skipper, John Mikel Obi on a free transfer on Monday, August 17, 2020 and fans of the club are super excited.
Obi, 33, joins Stoke from Trabzonspor in March after the Potters fought off interest from elsewhere for his signature.
Obi made nearly 400 appearances for Chelsea over an 11-year stint at Stamford Bridge, helping them to win the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup, League Cup and Charity Shield.
Speaking upon his arrival in Staffordshire, Obi said: “There is always a way to win a game, we need to find that way.
“That mentality needs to come into the team, it’s all about winning week in, week out.”
And reacting to Obi signing, some of the fans took to the club’s Facebook page to express their thoughts.
Ben Cliff says Obi will be a good signing who will bring experience to the team.
“Definitely, will sit in front of the back 4, and let the forward-thinking players do what they do best, cuz they know they have that cover in behind them, will be a good signing and will only benefit the players around him with his leadership and experience.”
In his reaction Paul Walker described Obi as class.
“Absolutely brilliant signing… Total class!”
