Ancelloti: Essien is quality

by Godfred Akoto Boafo
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has described Ghana midfielder Michael Essien as a “great player.”

Ancelloti managed Essien during his time at Chelsea though the player spent a large part of that tenure injured.

“When I coached him he was still recovering from his knee injury, but when he was back he trained really well. He then had another injury which kept him out 3-4 months but he’s a great player,” Ancelotti told  Milan Channel .

“Last year he didn’t play much because of the noteworthy competition, and for this reason he also played at right back. But he’s a quality midfielder and a great professional who works hard.”

Essien  joined Milan in January on a free transfer and is yet to make his competitive debut after been named to the bench for the league game against Torino.
