The former Chelsea and Real Madrid star has began a new chapter of his football career in Azerbaijan.

Ghana international Michael Essien started training with his new club Sabail FK on Friday evening.

The 36-year-old midfielder joined the Azerbaijani top-flight club on a year deal on a free transfer earlier this month.

He was without a club after his contract with Persib Bandung was terminated in March 2018.

He joined his new teammates at the Bayil Arena in their last group training ahead of their match with Zira FK.

Essien has previously played for several European clubs including Chelsea, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Olympique Lyon.
