The Rossoneri finished their season in eighth place in the league standings, which has seen them miss out on European qualification for the first time in over a decade, but the 31-year-old is confident that the Milan side will stage a comeback next term.
Essien, who joined the Italian side fromÂ ChelseaÂ in January, spoke to the officialÂ FIFAwebsite about his experience at Milan thus far, while also commenting on his hopes to find success withÂ GhanaÂ during this summerâ€™sÂ World Cup.
â€œIâ€™m doing fine at Milan,â€ said the Ghanaian international. â€œIâ€™ve settled in quickly and everyone has been nice and helpful.
â€œI canâ€™t complain about the experience Iâ€™ve had here and I have no doubt that the glory days of AC Milan will be back soon.
â€œWorld Cup? This is the best Ghana team ever. We have many options in every department, especially in the midfield, and we can try to repeat the journey we made in the last World Cup.
â€œThe first objective is to pass the group stage and then anything can happen, we can even reach the semi-finals or the final.â€
