Ghana legend Michael Essien has said he will consider a move to the Premier Soccer League in South Africa before calling time on his football career.
“SA is not bad, I would like to come here,” said Essien, who’s the global ambassador of beer brand Budweiser in their new partnership with the English Premier League and La Liga.
“You can never say never, I am keeping my options open. I love football, I love football … I have played it my whole life. So, I am not thinking about retirement at all (for now),” the former Black Stars player said.
The 36-year-old defensive midfielder is currently on the books of Azerbaijan-based club Sabail FK. He previously played for Chelsea, Real Madrid and AC Milan.
Essien won the Premiership twice and coveted Uefa Champions League with the Blues.
