Essien happy to return to Chelsea with Mourinho

Michael Essien signed off from Real Madrid with a goal as he prepares to return to Chelsea.

Essien helped Jose Mourinho end his reign a winner with victory over Osasuna.

When Essien headed home, he left the pitch to hug the man he weirdly refers to as "Daddy".

Like Mourinho, Essien is heading back to Chelsea at the end of his season's loan and hopes he has done enough to stay at the Bridge.
