Former Ghana International Michael Essien is happy to have played for Italian powerhouse AC Milan.
AC Milan signed Essien on a one-and-a-half-year contract in 2014 after the player left English giants Chelsea.
Essien left Stamford Bridge after a nine-year spell with the blues to join the Italian giants where he featured 20 times for the Club before leaving to Greek side Panathinaikos.
The 37-year-old feels privileged to have played for the seven-time UEFA Champions League winners.
“I will say I had a great opportunity to go to Milan. It was not the Milan before but is still AC Milan,” Essien was speaking to South African Broadcaster Carol Tsabalala.
“The name is still there and I had a chance to go to Milan and enjoyed what AC Milan is all about, it was good.”
The midfielder who is currently on the books of Azerbaijani side Sabail represented Ghana at two FIFA World Cups, thus in 2006 and 2014. He however missed the 2010 World Cup in South Africa due to injury.
