A statue of the former Chelsea midfielder, Micheal Essien, has been erected in his homeland of Ghana and it obviously looks frightful.
The awful sculpture of Michael Essien which shows him in Chelsea’s iconic blue home strip was erected in Kumasi a few years ago, but the artist is unknown.
Saddick Adams, a sports journalist based in Ghana tweeted a photo of the statue, informing Essien it was a “beautiful gift”.
Over the years, we have seen abysmal statues of great footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Maradona, but Michael Essien’s recent statue has been described as the worst of them all.
Essien who currently plays for Indonesian club Persib Bandung, made 256 appearances for Chelsea between 2005 and 2014. He also helped the Blues to win nine trophies, including two Premier League titles.
