Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien is absolutely delighted to have Jose Mourinho back at Stamford Bridge and the Ghanaian hopes the return of The Special One will bring a lot more glory to the West London club.

Essien spent the last season in the Spanish capital, playing for Mourinho on loan from Chelsea at Real Madrid and he mentioned that he had known the Portuguese tactician would be returning to his beloved Chelsea before the news became public in May. The Ghanaian international was brought to Stamford Bridge by Mourinho but had fallen down the pecking order in midfield under the succession of managers who came in after him and now that the Portuguese has returned after six years away, Essien is keen to play a key role under him once again.

According to Michael Essien, he is ready to give his all for Chelsea. He added that he hasn’t lost any motivation or desire to succeed, before going to state that he had been working very hard over the off season to be fit, both physically and mentally and he feels really good about the work he has done so far.

The former Lyon midfielder also mentioned that the team will give its best shot this season. All the trophies are up for grabs and according to Essien, Chelsea fans can rest assured that the club will go all out and try and bring as many trophies to Stamford Bridge as possible.

Michael Essien also mentioned when he scored the goal for Real Madrid in the last match of the season, he ran towards Mourinho to celebrate and instead of congratulating him, the Portuguese simply told him he expects to see him at pre-season training on the 8th of July and he had found that to be extremely funny too.
