John Mikel Obi the Super Eagles and Tianjin TEDA captain, has a successful surgery of abdominal strain in London.
He has not played in the league for three consecutive weeks as he was in the UK preparing for the surgical treatment.
This also means that he will also miss the next three league games while recovering
Last month, Mikel Obi underwent a traditional Chinese acupuncture, in a bid to be fit for a CSL clash against Chongqing Dangdai Lifan FC.
This makes the 30-year-old a major doubt for the Super Eagles camping in Corsica, France next month.
