Former Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has announced his departure from Azerbaijani club Sabail FK.
Essien joined Sabail FK on a one-year deal last summer after leaving Indonesian outfit Persib Bandung.
The 37-year-old made 10 appearances for the club before the league was halted amid the coronavirus crisis.
The former Chelsea ace shared a post on his official Instagram page announcing that his time at the club has come to an end.
"It's been a great pleasure until we meet again; stay strong and safe..." the African football legend posted.
Essien is widely expected to call time on his playing career and focus on coaching having completed his UEFA B badges two years ago.
