Mikel Obi Converted To Play As A Central Defender In China

Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel impressed in a new position as a
central defender yesterday as Tianjin Teda were held to a goalless
draw by Jiangsu Suning at Nanjing Olympic Sports Center, according to
allnigeriasoccer.com.

Tianjin Teda coach Jaime Pacheco was worried that his team conceded so
many oals during their warm-up games in pre-season, and Mikel had to
be drafted into the central defense in some of the matches.

Yesterday, the former Chelsea star was partnered by Pan Ximing in
central defense and helped goalkeeper Du Jia.

Originally an attacking midfielder, Mikel was converted into a
defensive midfielder by Jose Mourinho and played as a center back in
two competitive matches while he was at Stamford Bridge. Mikel has
told Tianjin Teda coach Pacheco that he is willing to play any
position for the team.
