Essien focuses on recovery

14 Nov 2008 - 12:24:27

Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien is uncertain when he will be fit enough to return to action as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury while on international duty with Ghana in September and has definitely been ruled out until well into the new year.

Essien told the club's official website: "I think with these injuries you can't really give it a time, it can be shorter or longer, the time is not that important.

"The most important thing is for me to get back stronger. If I come back early, fine, but if it takes a bit of time, fine.

"At the moment everything is going well. I am recovering very well and it won't be long before I can go outside and start running a bit.

"I can never forget about football, but it's a bit strange to see my colleagues training and playing games.

"I don't like to stop and it's hard at the moment, but I have to be patient and look after the knee and come back stronger, because I have more years ahead of me."
