Essien admits he feels strong after a decent six months on-loan at Real Madrid.
â€śIf youâ€™d asked me at the time, I didnâ€™t know how much I would play,â€ť Essien told the London Evening Standard. â€śBut anytime Mourinho needs me, he will call on me and I will do my best to help him and the team.
â€śI 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 havenâ€™t played in goal yet but Iâ€™d give it a try if they asked me!â€ť
