Former Super Eagles defender Tribo West has urged Mikel Obi to make peace with his former club and he encouraged the midfielder to reconcile with the Super Big outfit Trabzonspor.
West who is now a renowed pastor advised Mikel to move on and forgive and forget the manner Trabzonspor treated him that led to the breakdown in the relationship.
Mikel’s contract was terminated after the Nigerian midfielder expressed his displeasure with the League administrators to continue with the league despite the danger posed by the outbreak of the coronavirus disease.
Many European Leagues are currently on a Coronavirus-induced break. The pandemic, which originated from China, has killed over 8,000 people.
Mikel has returned to England after the sack, but West believes there’s a better way of looking at the issue.
“I just hope that Mikel will be able to reconcile with Trabzonspor because how you leave a club, how you are relieved of your contract, or how you walk away matters,” former AC Milan star Taribo told Sports Extra.
“In the future, he might be in need of the club, and it could be the other way round. So, it is how he leaves that they will use to judge him.
“I may not know what transpired between him and the club, whether it was as a result of the coronavirus or not.
“I just want him to leave properly. You never can rule out the possibility of the club needing him to provide them with players in the future. All that is required is peace.”
West won the 1996 Olympics gold medals for Nigeria and was part of the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan.
