The salary of Ghana midfielder, Michael Essien in Azerbaijan has been revealed.
Essien has been a key figure for Sabail FK.
The Chelsea legend earned about 800,000 euros in Asia and about 250,000 euros in Azerbaijan.
Speech by Umukh Mukhtar, the former head coach of Persib Bandung, said that the current player of Sabail lived a luxurious life in Indonesia.
“Michael had a fantastic salary and luxurious conditions in Indonesia. He was also saddened to leave Persib Bandung. At that time, the club’s management was planning to keep Essien for the 2018 season. But for some reason, he broke his contract with Persib Bandung. Maybe the issue was with the coach. However, he had a contract. But what can I do, maybe his departure was due to the mentality. He failed in Persib.”
Michael’s contract with Sabail expires at the end of the current season.
