Former Ghana International Player, Michael Essien has been appointed as a staff of the coaching department at Danish club, FC Nordsjælland.

The club announced that Essien will join them for the upcoming season and will train with the players in the form of a player-coach.

The club said Essien’s knowledge has been deemed valuable after spending a few weeks with them to gather experience on his coaching career.

The club’s official statement reads: “FC Nordsjælland has signed the former Black Star, Lyon, Real Madrid, and Chelsea player as part of the club’s coaching staff for the season 2020/2021.”

“A few weeks ago, 37-year-old Michael Essien visited FC Nordsjælland as an inspirational trip in relation to him doing his coaching badges.”

“Here he had the opportunity to be part of the work around both the Superliga team, several of the club’s academy squads, and got to understand teaching and development of young players outside the pitch in FCN.

“Now Essien himself will be able to contribute to this since he has accepted to become part of the club’s coaching staff in the upcoming season, with the title of Player Coach, under the guidance of Head Coach Flemming Pedersen.”

“Essien will join the staff in an assistant role and participate in the trainings alongside the players to help implement the drills and ideas in the best possible way as well as contribute with new input to coaching group evaluations of the training session afterward.”

The former Real Madrid player will form a Ghanaian trio with Mas-ud Didi Dramani and Laryea Kingston in the Nordsjaelland coaching staff.

Jan Laursen who’s the Sporting Director at the club explained their reasons for contracting Essien.

“Michael left a very positive impression here during his visit and we continued the dialogue with him after he had left”, Jan Laursen told the club’s official website.

“We felt, he was excited by what he experienced here through our philosophy, the people he met at the club, and that our environment inspired him.

“At the same time, Michael’s visit gave us a clear impression of how much a coaching staff member on the pitch, as an active part of the training with the players, can contribute and add.

“That part we are looking forward to further developing, and we are very happy that it can happen through and with such a football- and human capacity as Michael Essien is.”
