Chelsea hero Michael Essien wants to play on after Persib Bandung exit

Chelsea hero Michael Essien is eager to continue playing.

Essien was released by Indonesian club Persib Bandung this month, but isn't prepared to hang up the boots just yet.

Now 35, the former Ghana international had 12 months in Indonesia, scoring five goals. L'Equipe says Essien is now seeking a new club.

The veteran could return to Chelsea for a training stint ahead of organising his next move.
