Essien: I'll Be A Blue For Life

Recommended Posts

MICHAEL ESSIEN wants to end his career at Chelsea. The Ghana international recently signed a new four-year contract but is ready to pledge his future to the Blues way beyond that. He revealed: “With football being what it is, you can never be certain what will happen in the years ahead. “But I’d be very happy if I could play for Chelsea until I stop. It is a great club and I’ve really settled here. “It was always a dream of mine since I was a young boy to play in England. “Chelsea have helped me with that dream and I am glad that I can give something back to the club. It would be good to stay a long time.” Essien, 24, has stayed in close contact with former boss Jose Mourinho but is adamant everyone is pulling in the same direction under Avram Grant. He said: “At Chelsea, we’re all professional and want to do our best for the club and of course the fans. “There is a job for us all to do at Chelsea, we are going well in the league and there is a big game in the Champions League against Rosenborg.” The Blues top Group B despite only drawing 1-1 at Stamford Bridge with the Norwegians back in September. But a win at the Lerkendal Stadium tonight guarantees their passage into to the next stage and Essien reckons it is unthinkable to even contemplate going out. He said: “It would be strange for Chelsea to go out at this group stage.” Essien was revealing his thoughts when he pitched up at NikeTown in London to look at the boot colours designed for him by school children. Just moments before he walked in, actor Dustin Hoffman was walking out after he too put finishing touches to his own signature trainers. Essien said: “It’s fantastic for the kids because I will actually be wearing the boots they have designed in some upcoming games.” Arsenal are top of the Premier League but Essien reckons Chelsea are capable of reeling them in. The midfielder, who yesterday lost his appeal against a red card at Derby, said: “It was a slow start to the season but now we’re in the title race it is so far so good. “I think it will be among the usual four for the title, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. “But Manchester City could make a breakthrough as they are going well now under Sven Goran Eriksson.”Source: The Sun
