Michael Essien will start for AC Milan in their UEFA Champions League meeting with Athletico Madrid on Wednesday.

Essien, 31, will profit from a number of injury situation that has plagued the Rosonneri ahead of the visit of the high-flying Spanish side.

Alongside Keisuke Honda and Riccardo Saponara’s ineligibility has come injury to Stephan El Shaarawy, Valter Birsa, Robinho and most recently to Ricky Kaka, who picked up an ankle injury against Bologna on Friday night.

Sitting midfield positions will be for Michael Essien and Nigel de Dong, whilst Adil Rami and Daniele Bonerea look set for centre-back, with Ignazio Abate and Mattia De Sciglio at full-back.

The Ghanaian international was an unused substitute for Milan as they saw off Bologna 1-0 at the San Siro over the weekend.

    I hope he impresses with his experience and strength,
    Ghana have enough of great midfielders who can do better in Brazil.

    Am tipping Atsu,kwadwo Asamoah,wakaso,Dede to Shine at Brazil.

    God bless Oman Ghana

    askantwi, I agree with you, we have so many midfielders. Frank Acheampong, for instance, has not played probably the whole year for his team. E. Frimpong just started playing active football so even though not too late, it’s too early to call for his inclusion.
    I like both of them but let see who Coachito call for the Montenegro test
