Michael Essien is thanking his fans for welcoming him to Greece, as he took to Tweeter after the conformation of the contract with Panathinaikos.
The source reveals that the 32 year old Ghanaian footballer Michael Essien will play for Panathinaikos as he has signed the contract with the club. He moved to Pana on a free transfer, with his contract at AC Milan coming to a close at the end of June.
The legendary Ghanaian midfielder Michael Essien confirms the deal with the domestic giants on Tuesday having arrived in Athens on Monday to complete his medical.
Essien took to Tweeter on Monday in order to thank his followers and fans, who made his arrival very special.
He began, writing on his @MichaelEssien account:
Thanks a lot of the #PAO fans for [sic] welcoming me into the green family, “See you soon #PAO” “Just touched down in Athens and the love from the Panathenikos [sic] fans was incredible. #pao”.
According to the source newly-promoted Premier League side Watford along with EPL duo Queens Park Rangers and West Bromwich Albion, not to indicate FC Dallas, New York Red Bulls and Orlando City Soccer Club had all been linked to the veteran.
But, Panathenikos made its move early, with sports channel reporting recently that the player Essien would be earning €1.1million per season with scope for an increase up to €1.5million with bonuses.
Essien remains one of the most decorated names in European football despite his disappointing spell with Milan and his achievement represents a coup for Panathinaikos.
