Super Eagles forward, Brown Ideye has backed the decision of Mikel Obi to quit Trabzonspor due to Turkish FA's inability to suspend the league due to the coronavirus pandemic across the world.
Recall that the Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor announced on Tuesday that they have mutually agreed to part ways with former Chelsea star John Obi Mikel.
In an Instagram post, the former Nigerian captain describes the decision to keep the league in progress as irrational as the world battles with the deadly virus.
Reacting to this development, Ideye told Brila Fm in an interview that the former Chelsea star took the right decision to quit the league.
“I will do the same thing. I was shocked that the Turkish league was still on,” said Ideye.
“I only found out yesterday when I was going through livescore and saw there were games played in Turkey.
“I was shocked. Even the highest-paid players and biggest leagues in the world have all shut down.”
“I called a friend who plays in Turkey and he told me the footballers union is trying to get the league postponed.”
