Michael Essien has given Real Madrid a massive boost after returning to training on Thursday.

The 30-year-old however did not train with the group alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Ricardo Kaka, Gonzalo Higuan and Fabio Coentrao.

Essien picked up a slight injury problem during Madrid’s Uefa Champions League defeat at Galatasary on Tuesday and it was widely feared he could be sidelined for a number of weeks.

But GHANAsoccernet.com revealed on Thursday morning the injury of the combative midfielder was not serious and expected to be fit for their Champions League semi-final games.

The Ghanaian international resumed training on Thursday afternoon to boost the Madrid ahead of the remaining matches in the Spanish League and more crucially the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The former Lyon enforcer is Ghana’s sole representative in the Europe’s elite-inter club competition after Kwadwo Asamoah’s Juventus crashed out of the competition.
