There has been much speculation regarding Michael Essien's future recently, but finally all speculation can cease; Essien is now officially an AC Milan player.
Yesterday, Essien was rumoured to have failed a medical, something Essien was quick to deny:
"I know him very well."
"He's a great player, a warrior I think to use in the midfield."
"He will give also bring big values on and off the pitch. He's a guy with personality that will be useful for the team."
