The Nigerian was on target for the Tianjin Tigers, though they crumbled to the Buccaneers of the League in a friendly encounter

John Obi Mikel opened his Tianjin TEDA account as they crumbled 6-2 to St. Pauli FC on Saturday.

The signing of Mikel, coupled with other arrivals in Jaime Pacheco’s squad were meant to strengthen the squad after a poor outing last season, but they bowed to 2-1 to Borussia Mönchengladbach in their pre-season outing.

Against the German second division outfit, they continued their losing streak but the 29-year-old gave a glimpse of his stellar quality when he headed in a free kick to reduce the deficit for his team who were three goals down.

Despite the heavy defeat, Mikel will be heavily tipped to enjoy a fine season with the Chinese Super League, having impressed for Chelsea last term before the arrival of manager Antonio Conte.
