Chelsea veteran Michael Essien has offered his best wishes to Marco van Ginkel.

The Dutchman has suffered a serious knee injury in the past week.

Essien told "Having suffered two cruciate ligament injuries myself, I know how it feels and the hard work that lies ahead of him. He is young so I expect him to come back sooner than expected. All the best Marco."
