Chelsea winning back to back Champions league will be a great achievement-Michael Essien

Former Chelsea star, Michael Essien, believes former club, Chelsea, can win the UEFA Champions League title again this season.

Essien was present at the group stage draw in Istanbul, Turkey, as one of the special guests alongside former Chelsea teammate, Branislav Ivanovic, to assist with the draw.

Just before the draw began, Essien was asked how impressed he was with his former side’s club performance in the competition last season along with their prospects this season.

The former Black Stars midfielder did not hold back as he claimed with the addition of Belgian Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea can retain the title, uefa.com reports.

“I believe they [Chelsea] can do back-to-back wins for the club. It would be a very big achievement but they have a big squad, and with Lukaku back, they are well prepared.”

The versatile and hard-working midfielder began his senior career in France with Bastia and Lyon, where he scooped two Ligue 1 titles, before Chelsea made him a club-record signing in 2005.

Essien was with Chelsea for 10 seasons, joining in August 2005 and eventually leaving in 2015.
