Jose Mourinho return to revive Michael Essien's Chelsea career

Published on: 04 May 2013
Essien was on loan at Real Madrid

Chelsea could be set to give a lifeline to former star Michael Essien next season when he returns to the club likely to be managed by Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho is heavily expected to take the reigns at Chelsea this summer, and he could help Essien kick start his second spell at the Blues as it has been widely reported that he has reached a deal.

Essien joined Mourinho's Real Madrid last August after struggling with injuries in West London, and despite a mystery illness in November he has become a key member of the Spanish outfit's squad.

But the Ghana international is already looking to his return to Stamford Bridge, with his chances of playing regularly boosted by talk of Mourinho's homecoming.

Mourinho signed Essien for £24.4m in 2005 for Chelsea, and was determined to bring him to the Bernabeu last summer as he believes the 30-year-old can still cut it at the highest level.

    Oh jay jay? You too?......well,I guess the old saying is true....."By their fruits you shall know them..." So Ghanaians, I present to you the average nigerian, someone who doesn't know what the meaning of peace is.....someone who sees the need to stir trouble where there is none, and if you need prove, google "boko haram" and read for yourselves nigeria's version of christians and muslims living peacefully together...I'm done with this guy too, cos if I should banter with him, it will bring out the animal in me....

    The best answer to a fool is silence. Acting as if he is not even there. Why would a sensible and cultured person wakes up in the morning with an aim to come to GSN just to insult people? Such person is a fool that needs to be avoided at all cost.

    Grow up Nigerian kid. There are much more matured Nigerians that have joined and I have changed my opinion of Nigerians after posters like Jay-jay 10 etc etc. Act like him and stop embarrassing yourself.
