Michael Essien wants AC Milan players to stay united

Ghanaian midfielder Michael Essien has urged his AC Milan team-mates to ‘stay united’ if they are to achieve their goals of excelling in the Champions League this season.

The Ghana international played his first match for the Rossoneri last weekend as the San Siro outfit lost 3-1 to Napoli who are in the lower rungs of the league table.

This means their only chance of winning silverware is in the Champions League where they face Atletico Madrid in the knock-out stages.

The midfielder has insisted that the whole club have to stay together if they are to climb the table and succeed in the Champions League.

“I’m very happy to have played 90 minutes against Napoli,” he told Milan Channel.

“I hadn’t played a full match for a long time, but unfortunately the result wasn’t positive. We have to keep on playing together and then things will only get better.

“I think that I improved throughout the course of the game. I kept on feeling better as the match progressed and that was important for me.

“The more I play the better it will be. I tried to score but unfortunately it didn’t go in.

“This is a very difficult season for Milan, but we have to stay united. We all have to give a little bit extre and help each other out. We are Milan and we have to do better.”
