Mikel, who played for English football giants, Chelsea before making a big money move to China, recently advised young footballers to quell any intention of playing in the chinese league (now that he’s back on English soil).
In an interview with the Telegraph the 31 year old has revealed that anyone under the age of 30 shouldn’t move to the CSL, saying:
“My advice to anyone thinking about going, is have a long think about it,” he explained. “You have to go at the right time.
“I certainly wouldn’t say to anyone under the age of 30 to go there. They will regret it if they do.
“It’s worth doing for a couple of years, if only to learn a different culture, to give yourself an experience that takes you out of your comfort zone, but do not be tempted by the money if you are young. Do your research, check what sort of club you are going to over there.
“You should wait until you are approaching the end of your career. The money makes the move tempting, we’re only human, but do not be tempted by the size of the cheque if you are in the prime of your career. It’s not worth it.”
