Michael Essien refuses to retire from football now and explains why

Former Ghana international Michael Essien says he is not ready to call time of his career because he enjoys football too much.

Michael Essien says that the time has not come for him to hang his boots. The former Lyon and Chelsea player was speaking in the wake of the retirement of former Chelsea captain John Terry.

Essien told Sun Sport in an interview that he has started enjoying football even more and has not decided what he will do in retirement from club football.

However, the 36 year-old man who was known as the Bison in his heyday admitted that injuries have taken a toll on his performances, forcing him to adapt his all-action style.

The clubless midfielder said he was in the hunt for a club and at age 35 still has a lot to offer on the football pitch.

He is quoted as saying: "Why haven’t I retired? I love this game too much. It gets to a point that the older you get the more you enjoy the game

"There’s no pressure on you. You want to go out there and enjoy yourself. I’m still thinking about what I can do when I hang up my shoes. And I really don’t know what to do.

"If something comes up, then I’ll be interested. Then I’ll think about what I can do next. I still want to stay football and find out what I can do."
