‘Class above this league’ – Plenty of Boro fans cannot believe how good this star has been

‘Class above this league’ – Plenty of Boro fans cannot believe how good this star has been

Whilst the Premier League may have been taking a few days off this weekend, the Championship and FA Cup were there to fill in, and Middlesbrough fans were certainly not complaining. The Teessiders recorded an impressive 1-0 away win at Ewood Park and came away in disbelief at the performance of John Obi Mikel, who shone throughout.

The Nigerian midfielder is a household name in English football for his 10 and a half year stint at Stamford Bridge, a spell where he won a whopping ten trophies with the Blues. Between summer 2006 and January 2017, Mikel won four FA Cups, two Premier Leagues, two League cups, the Champions League and the Europa League and he’s now showing all of that quality at The Riverside Stadium.

So far, the 31-year-old has appeared just five times for Boro, and it already looks like Tony Pulis has played an absolute blinder by bringing him to the club. The fans simply cannot believe how good he has been as his effortless displays have spurred the club on, and it looks so far like the ex-Chelsea man is still yet to get out of second gear in the Northeast with the best certainly yet to come.

The Boro fans are delighted that they’vs got Mikel and will hope the Nigerian only gets better with more games.
