Real Madrid star Michael Essien suffers injury, out of Deportivo clash

Published on: 30 September 2012

Real Madrid midfielder Michael Essien has suffered a slight injury setback, ruling him out of Sunday’s clash with Deportivo La Coruna.

The Ghana international missed the club’s final training session on Saturday evening ahead of the game.

Real Madrid’s first team squad trained at the Valdebebas in preparation for Sunday’s game against at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The only person missing was Essien, who only worked out in the gym.

The Ghanaian suffered a knock to his foot during the match against Millonarios and will definitely be out of the game against Depor.

José Mourinho led the session with all the first team players - with the exception of Essien.

The injury is thought not to be serious and Essien could return for the Champions League in midweek.

    THE MAN IS STIL NOT FINISHED BUT I THINK BCOS OF HIS INJURY PROBLEMS, HE SHD CONSIDER PLAYING IN A LESS COMPETITIVE LEAGUE NXT SEASON WHERE THERE IS NO PRESSURE AND HE CAN RELAX AND PLAY EASILY. GYAN DID THE SAME COS HE KNOWS THE ENGLISH GAME IS MORE PACY, TACTICAL AND PHYSICAL AND HE IS PLAYING AND SCORING. NOT BECAUSE HE IS WORLD CLAS BUT BECOS HE IS PLAYING IN A WEAKER LEAGUE. OR BETTER STIL THINK OF RETIRING AND CONCENTRATE ON FOOTBAL ADMI OR COACHING OR UR FOUNDATION.
