Michael Essien has been named in Real Madrid's squad for Copa del Rey

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has named Michael Essien in his 20-man squad to face Celta Vigo tonight in the quarter-final of the Copa del Rey.

Essien has been sidelined for recent matches after an allergic reaction to a medicine given to him by the club.

The 30-year-old was at his parent club Chelsea last week but returned to Madrid to train with the Los Blancos.

The on-loan player has been one of the most versatile players at the Santiago Bernabeu.
