Michael Essien says he is fit and it is not a technical reason why he cannot get some playing time under his belt at Panathinaikos
The player has recently not featured for the Panathinaikos team he transferred to from AC Milan.
Essien, who had injury troubles in his early days at Panathinaikos says he has been fit since October last year and that the reason for his lack of games should be a question for someone else.
Speaking to gazzetta.gr, the former Chelsea and AC Milan star said:
“As far as I know is not the case for technical reasons, or has to do with injury problems. I am healthy and I train every day since last October when my injury was going better. “There is no concern for injuries to my discussions with the coaching staff. Not due to technical reasons or any problem related to football.
“It must be something else, but I guess that is something that must be answered by someone else. As for me, I am always ready to fight, but I do not have this possibility in recent months.”
The Black Stars midfielder also talked about his move to Greek from Italy disclosing he does not regret the transfer move.
On whether he regrets his decision to continue his career in Greece, Michael Essien answered:
“No, I don’t regret that I came to Greece to play football. I know that things did not work as planned, but I have some great friends and people who are always friendly and nice towards me.
“The robbery at my house affected me a little and made me feel as unwelcome, but I am fine now and enjoy the rest of the season.”
Michael Essien has played 16 games for Panathinaikos in Greece this season.
