Essien admits he feels strong after a decent six months on-loan at Real Madrid.
āIf youād asked me at the time, I didnāt know how much I would play,ā Essien told the London Evening Standard. āBut anytime Mourinho needs me, he will call on me and I will do my best to help him and the team.
āI have played in a lot of different positions and I have just been happy to be involved. I have played in defence and midfield and they have been different challenges. I havenāt played in goal yet but Iād give it a try if they asked me!ā
