“Anytime Chelsea was playing that season, he would tell me to stop everything I was doing and watch the game and take notes on Essien’s performance”, Barusso told CitiSports.

The former Nania FC player had high admonishing for Essien who featured in a similar role as him.

”Michael Essien was a very great player at the time, and we played in a similar position.
