Michael Essien originally joined Panathinaikos on June of 2015 but he couldn’t play any competitive match with the Greek club until 3 months later due to a leg injury.

When he did manage to make his debut appearance and play, Essien made a string of impressive performances. The Ghanaian midfielder helped Panathinaikos in climbing to the top spots of the Greek Super League.

Unfortunately for Michael Essien, his influence in Panathinaikos has dropped as he has missed out from a number of matches and been given more time on the sidelines as a substitute player.

Essien is expected to leave the Greek club at the end of the season and there are rumors going on stating that he might be making a move to Al Ittihad and reunite with his former Chelsea teammate Sulley Muntari.

Whether or not this is true and he does join Al Ittihad it might be last club that Michael Essien joins as the Ghanaian midfielder is 33 year old and injuries are hampering his playing time on the pitch.

At the age of 33, Essien has performed with a number of different clubs including: Bastia, Lyon, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Ac.Milan and his current team Panathinaikos. It was with Chelsea where he managed to make a name for himself and lift a number of pieces of silverware.

Even though it’s been over 3 years since Michael Essien played in the Premier League, Michael Essien still remains up to date with everything that is happening in English football and Essien has recently voiced his support towards Leicester City who are on the verge of making history and becoming the new champions of England.

The veteran midfielder wrote on his twitter account: ‘Premiership is really unpredictable, well done to Leicester City FC for their win today, I hope Leicester City FC win the premier league’

Leicester City is only a few points away from winning the English League in what has been a very unexpected season and Essien supports them to make it happen.
