Michael Essien is not broke, he has houses scattered across Europe – Saddick Adams claims –

Ace sports broadcaster, Saddick Adams, also known as Sports Obama, has dismissed claims of a “fall from grace” being made against Chelsea legend Michael Essien following a court ruling.

Speaking on the Angel Sports show, Saddick Adams offered detailed explanations of how Michael Essien became involved in the entire saga.

Sports Obama, as he is popularly known, revealed that during his playing career, Michael Essien made significant investments in real estate and other ventures, which are now supporting him in retirement.

Saddick Adams observed that Essien’s real estate business includes mansions in England and Spain, which are rented out and sold at substantial prices.

He stated that the two houses being auctioned as a result of a court ruling were properties that Essien had purchased on mortgage and were managed by his wife, Akosua Puni.

“Essien owns numerous properties in London. During the Roman Abramovich era, Chelsea players were encouraged to buy houses in Cobham, one of the most expensive areas in London, reserved for millionaires. The house is a large mansion valued at millions.

“Essien was not particularly concerned about the house. He has many properties in Spain and England; his mother even stayed there. Those claiming he is bankrupt do not understand Michael Essien. What does ‘broke’ mean to Michael Essien?” he questioned.

Obama’s statement follows reports that two houses owned by the Chelsea legend have been listed for sale.

According to a report by Dailyguidenetwork.com, which was cited by GhanaWeb, the properties are situated at Stephen Quarshie Crescent, East Legon, House Number 9, and House Number 204/205, Trassaco (Phase 2) Adjiringano, all in Accra.

The auctioneer, tasked with selling the properties and who spoke under the condition of anonymity, verified the directive from the Deputy Sheriff of the High Court.

The auctioneer estimates that one of the properties is worth between $20 and $30 million.
