Ghanaian players have hailed Michael Essien’s move to Spanish champions Real Madrid.
Essien’s future at Chelsea was bleak after manager Roberto di Matteo showed on many occasions the midfield gem was not a preferred choice.
The 29-year-old was on the verge of getting rotten on the Chelsea bench until phone last Friday from Jose Mourinho whom he calls ‘daddy’ convinced him.
Essien’s partner in the Ghana midfield Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu posted on his official Twitter page: “Confirmed! Essien joins real madrid. Happy for uBro. God is Good.”
Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong who idolises Essien also tweeted: “Essien gone to real Madrid Good luck bro.”
