Ghana ace is ‘calm’ about exit rumours

Published Add your comment

Michael Essien has dismissed rumours of exiting Chelsea in the summer, insisting his long-term future lies with the Blues.

"I do not care about the rumours, I am calm,” Essien said about speculation surrounding his future. Nobody from Chelsea has told me anything and I have a contract with them."

Essien believes that the key to winning trophies next season will be teamwork amongst a tight-knit squad, in a hint that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich won’t be making too many changes to the current line up over the transfer period.

"We have known each other a long time and we know what the other players are thinking - that's a great thing for us and it shows on the pitch,” Essien added.

"Things come natural to us, we don't have to think about it. When one of us has the ball
he knows exactly what his team-mates are going to be doing.

"We defend together, we attack together - that's teamwork. It's good for us that we have kept the same players because we're used to each other now."

While Chelsea suffered from indifferent form over Christmas, they came good in the new year, and nearly pipped Manchester United to the title.

And even though the Blues finished the season trophy-less, fans have a lot to look forward to next season, with Fernando Torres still finding his feet at his new home and some new signings and manager in the pipeline.
