How Mikel made Stoke City stronger – O'Neill


Stoke City manager Michael O’Neill has revealed John Obi Mikel has made the club stronger with his role.


The 33-year-old teamed up with the Potters in the summer after leaving Turkish Super Lig side Trabzonspor by mutual agreement.


O’Neill is delighted with the solid defensive performances from his club and lauded the impact of the former Super Eagles captain.


Mikel, who signed a one-year deal with Stoke has previously revealed his desire to help the Championship club gain promotion to the Premier League at the end of the current season.


The 33-year-old had previously featured in the Championship with Middlesbrough after leaving Chinese Super League side Tianjin TEDA.


Mikel will hope to inspire Stoke City to their sixth win of the season when they take on Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
