Real Madrid midfielder Michael Essien is set to play on Wednesday when they face Ajax in the Champions League after recovering from injury.

The Ghana enforcer has travelled with his side to Amsterdam where they play the Dutch giants in Group D.

Essien could not play for the Spanish giants when they played Deportivo in La Liga on Sunday because of the minor injury setback.

The Ghanian star will be available for the Champions League game as the injury was not serious.

Real Madrid agreed to sign the 29-year-old Ghana midfielder on loan from Chelsea for the rest of the season on transfer deadline day.

The 29-year-old, who won two Premier League titles, four FA Cups and one Champions League at Chelsea, joined Real Madrid on loan until the end of the ongoing season.

    We would need him next year in the squad for the World Cup qualifiers to close the midfield and throw the key away.
    Zambia, Lesotho and Sudan need basketful of goals to respect Ghana again. Sulley Muntari also is on the mend. I believe Ghana is going assemble the greatest squad ever at AFCON and WC.

    “STYLE OF PLAY”
    BARCELONA ARE NOTHIG EXTRAORDINARY. ALL THEY DO IS THIS…
    EACH PLAYER IS LIMITED TO 2 AT MOST 3 TOUCHES ON THE FIELD. PASS, BREAK AND PASS ETC. THEY DO THIS THROUGHOUT THE GAME. THEY PASS THE BALL TO
    WHOEVER IS ON THE LEFT, RIGHT OR INFRONT AS THEY ATTEMPT TO SCORE. THE ONLY TIME U SEE ANY BARCA PLAYER HOLDING THE BALL IS WHEN THEY R IN
    THE 18 YARD BOX. WATCH THEM VERY CAREFULLY. THIS IS HOW THEY BEAT OPPONENTS. THE MINUTE AN OPPOSING PLAYER ATTEMPTS TO HOLD UNTO THE BALL, ITS
    TAKEN AWAY IMMEDIATELY, AND THE CYCLE CONTINUES ALL OVER. THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO HOLD BALL POSSESSION.
    WAT DO MEAN BY “STYLE OF PLAY” IN AFRICA? SPAIN HAS WON 2 EURO CUPS AND REIGNING WCUP CHAMPS WITH THIS STYLE. WOMP3 WEI NA WOP3 WHAT?
    IM PROLLY SURE THE SPANIARDS COPIED THIS FROM THE BRASILIANS.

    GH FUO are you still singing this “pass, break and pass” song? Massa, I’m not saying that style is bad but in soccer no style of play is permanent. The game is such that while you’re plotting to kill your opponent, he’s also plotting to kill you. What did the pass, break and pass do in the Chelsea/Barcelona uefa semi final match? It’s all about how the coach will be able to read the game and map out a good strategy to diffuse the opponents style. Sometimes hanging on the ball is also very good, if only you have what it takes to. It all depends on who you’re playing and what type game plan they come with so let’s have our peace son.
