Ghana boss Milovan Rajevac says his team is preparing for life at this month’s World Cup in South Africa without star midfielder Michael Essien.

The Chelsea man is out of the World Cup because of a knee injury suffered whilst on duty for the Black Stars at the African Cup of Nations in January.

Although the Serbian tactician knows how big a blow it is, he believes the squad can pull together in his absence.

“It’s a big blow, not only to the team but to the country,” Rajevac said.

“He is an instrumental player, he is important to this team. Michael is a winner, he is a big asset and we are all sad about the fact that we will go to South Africa without him.

“He is one of the most experienced players in my team and I have no doubt that he was going to have a positive contribution to our ambitions.

“I hope and believe that the other players would give off their best. We want to achieve with this team and must work hard.

“We will focus on the task ahead and hope we have a good World Cup. I hope the past experiences with injuries, though unfortunate will help us stay united and fight for each other.”

Ghana meet Australia, Germany and Serbia in Group D of the World Cup which kicks off in just over a week’s time.
