CARLO ANCELOTTI SPEAKS TO THE MILAN CHANNEL: “Essien is a great professional”

MILAN – Carlo Ancelotti spoke exclusively to the Milan Channel about Michael Essien yesterday. Here is what the Real Madrid coach had to say:"When I coached him he was still recovering from his knee injury, but when he was back he trained really well. He then had another injury which kept him out 3-4 months but he’s a great player. Last year he didn’t play much because of the noteworthy competition, and for this reason he also played at right back. But he’s a quality midfielder and a great professional who works hard.”
