Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has applauded the 2014 UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid after the Los Blancos won their 10th European League title beating fellow country neighbors Atlético de Madrid at the Estádio da Luz in Portugal on Saturday night.

Madrid were able to acquire their first European crown in 12 years when they thrashed Atlético by 4-1 (AET), with goals coming from Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and reigning World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.

Essien, who had a loan spell with Real in the 2012/2013 league season, has established a good relationship with the Spanish side since leaving the club.

‘Congratulations to Real Madrid for winning their 10th Champions League trophy, what a game though, great final#halamadrid,’ Essien tweeted just after the game.

The Ghanaian international is expected to join the Black Stars camp in the Netherlands for the Black Stars’ training camp ahead of the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup.
