Essien has posted pictures of his team-mates

Chelsea superstar Michael Essien has published astonishing never-seen-before pictures of his coach Jose Mourinho and some of his top team-mates when they were kids. (See picture below)

The pictures, which attracted huge followers on Essien's page on Instagram shows the likes of Fernando Torres, John Terry, Didier Drogba, David Luiz and 12 other Chelsea stars when they were children.

The Ghana international, who himself seemed surprised as how his coach and his team-mates looked when they kids, could not hide his delight.

"I can't stop loving this picture.Once upon a time.God is great..!!!," Essien wrote on Instagram.

Despite showing his HUGE influence with his skill and dexterity when playing for Ghana in last week's World Cup qualifier against, he is unlikely to play a big role in this season's Chelsea campaign.

With the performance against Zambia Essien has shown that he will still provide valuable depth in Mourinho's midfield.

The Ghanaian international was left out of Mourinho's Champions League final squad but can still feature in the Premier League and other domestic tournaments if called upon by his manager.

    Please Essien, i beg you to not think that Chelsea is the only team on earth for you at the moment. The truth is the owner doesn't like you that why your daddy mourihino doesn't play you so he wouldn't be criticized. Learn from Kevin Prince Boateng and move on in January asap.

    These are great pictures. anyone criticizing him does not have heart. whoever says they didn't enjoy seeing these pictures is just LYING TO THEMSELVES.

    What is wrong with Gaynaian players? Essien is an Instagram/Twitter expert at Chelsea, Frimpong is a Twitter expert at Arsenal. Both of them are perennial bench warmers. Gaynaians lack focus in everything they do.
