Ghana star Essien joins Real Madrid B training due to international break
Ghana star midfielder Michael Essien was among five Real Madrid regulars who trained with the Real Madrid second team on Thursday due to the international break.
The 29-year-old who is on loan from European champions Chelsea, together with his former Chelsea team-mate Ricardo Carvalho, Jose Callejón, goalkeepers Adan and Jesus Collado joined Real Madrid second team training.
The Ghana deputy captain was not included James Kwesi Appiah’s 21-man squad to face Malawi in the 2013 AFCON second-leg qualifier on Saturday.
Essien has not played for Ghana since playing part in the 3-1 victory over Congo in the 2012 AFCON qualifiers in 2011.
