Essien puts injury issues behind him
Michael Essien is raring to make an impact this
season for Chelsea as he puts his injury worries
The Ghanaian, twelve months ago suffered a
cruciate ligament injury in the first week of
pre-season training and that affected his season
when he returned in January as he found it hard to
hold down a regular place in the side that went on
to win two major titles.
A player with Essien's injury issues - prior to
his last injury, he had suffered two serious knee
injuries - will be eager to enjoy a perfect run
and this season, the midfielder is in high spirits
as he travels to the United States with the
Chelsea squad for pre-season.
"It is hard during the season if you miss
pre-season," Essien said.
"And so it is good to start and hopefully finish
the whole pre-season. So I am looking forward to
that and we will see what happens. So far so good
and I am looking forward to the season.
"My summer was relaxing, nothing too busy, I was
in France and Ghana."
