Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has again declared is happiness over working under coach Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese, who is the Real Madrid coach, rescued the midfielder from a torrid time at Chelsea by grabbing him on loan from the English side last month.

Mourinho signed Essien for Chelsea from Lyon when he was the Blues manager and the player is happy he is to be working with Mourinho at Real Madrid again.

"I feel great. I call him dad. It feels great to be working with him again.

"He’s a coach who knows me really well. He brought me to Chelsea, so he knows my qualities and what I can contribute.

"I am really happy to be under his command again. He hopes to fight together for more titles for Real Madrid."
