In what seems like a platform to showcase his most profound talent which is football to the Chelsea fans Michael Essien ended up scoring his first European champions league goal against Apoel Nicosia in 2008 and the rest will be history including wonderful volleys against Arsenal and Barcelona respectively.
Chelsea fans quickly noted that an anchor man in the hearts of their midfielder had been born and one who they could rely on to get away from their troubles, The Ghanaian Maestro hit the ground running with an endless burst of speed either forward or backward which prompted many to argue whether there was anyone better.
Mourinho’s birth in the premier League witnessed a list of aggressive players never seen before in the history of the club and Essien known as the ”Bisson” was very very good at every position he played on the field of Association football and when the club needed him he was there at DM, CM, LW, RW, RB, LB, CB.
Micheal Essien was a beat in all departments. You could rely on him to be the fifth man in defense and also to come up with crucial goals.Essien did it al at chelsea.Deputized for Carvalho when he got injured, played at right-back, held the midfield solid, and scored screamers.
Till date, many wonder whether Kante or Makelele was ever-reliable as the Ghanain.
