Since Michael Essien’s anterior cruciate ligament injury during a World Cup qualifier against Libya in September, we’ve had all sorts of predictions about his return.
The news at first seemed positive, with initial estimates suggesting he’d be back by January. Then we heard these initial guesses might have been somewhat optimistic and he could make a return as late as March. Now though, it looks like they’re splitting the difference, with the suggestion that the Chelsea midfielder will be back in February.
All I can say is, whenever he’s back, it can’t be soon enough.
