Mikel Obi may have made a long-awaited return to full action in China today, but he could not save his troubled Chinese Super League club Tianjin Teda as they lost 2-0 at home to Hebei CFFC.

Nigeria captain Mikel, who has been sidelined by injury for the past four months, played the entire 90 minutes, but his club sunk to their 13th loss of the season.

It was only the fourth league appearance of the 30-year-old midfielder since his big-money move from Chelsea.

They remain second from bottom of the table on 15 points, just a point ahead of rock-bottom Yanbian Funde.

The former Chelsea star last featured for his Chinese side in April before he had to undergo surgery for an abdominal problem. (SCORENigeria)
