Tianjin Teda captain John Obi Mikel has thrown a jibe at Changchun Yatai forward Odion Ighalo ahead of their Chinese Super League clash.
Mikel who has featured in every of the Tianjin Tigers' matches this campaign, dropped a message for Ighalo who has so far gotten seven goals from nine league appearances this campaign.
"You won't get this close to me at the weekend Odion Ighalo,” Mikel tweeted.
The former Granada star then responded to Mikel's tweet, hoping to have the last laugh in Changchun on Saturday.
