John Obi Mikel can’t wait to return to action for Tianjin Teda and Nigeria as he recovers from a surgery on his hip.

The Nigeria international who has scored once in three league games for the Tianjin Tigers this season, has been out of action since suffering an injury against Chongqing Lifan on April 2.
