Official: Ex-Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has joined a new club and its really surprising

Michael Essien was among the toughest midfielders during his glory days. The central midfielder made a name for himself during his 9-year stay at Chelsea.

From 2005 to 2014, Essien won two EPL titles, 4 FA Cups and one Champions League. A move to Real Madrid and then AC Milan followed in the years to come.

But recent times haven’t been good with the ex-Ghana international. His last known club was Panathinaikos, who terminated his contract prematurely.

And since the termination of his contract last year, he has been without a team.

Michael Essien signs for new club Persib Bandung

However, Essien is back in football as Indonesian club Persib Bandung have confirmed his signing today.

He would be wearing the N0 5 jersey and his one-year deal sees him earn around €800,000.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said:  “I hope I am the prelude to other world players moving to Indonesia.”

“Hopefully this is a good beginning for Indonesian football and also for Persib.

“Thank you for bringing me here. I’m excited and want to give my best.”
