Chelsea's Essien: Mourinho keeps in touch

Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has revealed former manager Jose Mourinho still keeps in touch.

The Ghana midfielder told The Sun: "He was the person who put his faith in me and done a lot for me. We stay in touch though we don't talk about football that much.

"He's a good man who does not forget people he cares about and he sends good-luck texts before games.

"I expect he'll send one before the Liverpool game."
