Michael Essien is confident Jose Mourinho wants him part of his Chelsea squad.

Essien, who scored only one goal in 28 appearances for Real, was signed by then Blues boss Mourinho in 2005 and sees him as a father figure, even calling him ‘Daddy’.

He said: “We have a very good relationship. I understand him very well. Daddy knows I can play in any position he wants me to, except goalkeeper.”
