Mikel Obi has parted ways with Turkish club, Trabzonspor, probably over his coronavirus comment.

Last Saturday, Mikel criticised Turkish football authorities for not suspending the Super Lig season despite the spread of the coronavirus across Europe .

The former Premier League star stated he does not feel comfortable during the Covid-19 outbreak and called for the season to be cancelled.

While no reason was given for the mutual termination of the contract, the club announced the former Chelsea midfielder gave up his remaining wages.
