Ghana international Michael Essien has stated that he does not mind playing anywhere in his return to Chelsea under Jose Mourinho.
Essien was reduced to a bench warmer under Chelseaís double-winning coach Roberto Di Mateo after a serious knee injury, but was offered a lifeline at Real Madrid by then manager Mourinho which has seen him bounce back.
ĎThe Bisoní opined he is ready to feature anywhere in the Blues setup after having played at the back and sometimes midfield at Santiago Bernabeu.
ďI donít mind playing anywhere for Chelsea under Jose Mourinho,Ē Essien told Goal. ďI am always positive and I will work hard and make myself always available for him.Ē
ďWhere I play doesnít matter just put me on the pitch and I will do the business for the club. I donít have much to prove. I have done it all, so I just go out there, work hard and win games.Ē
Mourinho brought Essien to Chelsea in a 24.4 million Pounds deal from Lyon during his first stint at the Stamford Bridge and the Ghanaian quickly became a key part in his setup.
Though a natural midfielder, Essien has played every position on the pitch under ĎThe Special Oneí except goalkeeping and he has excelled due to his versatility.
