Essien May Miss Start of Next Seaon

28th May 2010

Champion Chelsea FC's Premiership-winning midfielder Michael Essien has had his plans to return to playing, again delayed.  Essien, capped 51 times for Ghana, was recently ruled out of this year's World Cup in South Africa.

Both Chelsea FC & Ghana's medical staff have agreed that Essien's injured knee is responding very slowly to treatment, and it may well be the end of July before he even gets back on the training track.

Since debuting for Chelsea FC in 2005, Essien has become a huge favourite of the Chelsea FC fans and is under contract until 2013.
