Essien amongst Jose Mourinho's trusted trio at Real Madrid
By Ameenu Shardow
Michael Essien has emerged amongst two other players at Real Madrid who manager Jose Mourinho absolutely trusts.
The Ghana internati0onal alongside goalkeeper Diego Lopez and midfielder Luka Modric are currently the only players in the good books of the Portuguese trainer.
Even relationships amongst compatriots; Cristiano Ronaldo, Fabio Contrao and Pepe and the iconic Real Madrid manager have broken down.
This revelation serves further prove of the Ghana midfielder’s unblemished loyalty wherever he finds himself.
Essien has refused to be drawn in the politics of the Spanish giants with many others taking sides against the manager.
Mourinho is currently battling what appears a player war between himself and legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
This war arouse following the Portuguese decision to make Lopez his first choice goalkeeper and benching Spain’s World Cup winning captain.
This decision has seen most of Mourinho’s players including the critical Madrid press lining up behind Casillas.
But Essien would rather not get involved in these politics but rather concentrate on improving himself on the field of play.
