Nigeria national football team captain, John Obi Mikel, has hinted that he is not extending his contract with Middlesbrough, saying he has options elsewhere and wants to win trophies.
Shortly after Boro’s 2-1 win against Rotherham United in which he scored his first goal for the club he joined in the winter transfer market, the Chelsea legend confirmed that his contract ends at the end of the season.
”I don’t know, you can never say never, that’s why I said my contract ends, if there’s a conversation, okay fine,” Mikel said after the match.
”It’s a great club, it’s a big club. They will find the right players, get that dressing room back and make sure next season they are in the playoffs or automatic promotion.”
Asked if he would like to stay at Boro and if he has other options, Mikel answered: ”I don’t know, we’ll see what happens. I have conversation with my people and then we’ll see what comes out, options here and there.
”There’s a lot of option but you always have to pick the right one, the one that is going to suit you and suit the way you play and what you want to achieve.
”I still want to win trophies, so I will go somewhere, where you know, the players, the fans and the team want to win.”
Mikel appeared in 19 matches across all competitions for Middlesbrough and captained the club in their last six games in the EFL Championship.
