Michael Essien, left with Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, left Chelsea for Madrid on Friday.
Udinese midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has hailed Michael Essien’s loan move from Chelsea to Real Madrid.
Essien made one of the more unexpected moves on the transfer deadline night.
The midfield gem had dropped down the pecking order at the Stamford Bridge side and his departure was expected.
Badu, who was mentored by Essien in the Ghana team has expressed delight his partner will be returning to action.
He posted on his official Twitter page: “Confirmed! Essien joins real madrid. Happy for you Bro. God is Good.”
Essien has completed his loan move to the Santiago Bernabeu and could make his debut against Granada on Sunday in the La Liga.
