Michael Essien has confirmed that he is returning to Chelsea this month insisting incoming boss Jose Mourinho is the right man to steer the Blues in the right direction.

Essien wants to return to Chelsea

The Special One took the midfielder to Real Madrid on loan last season ? putting the Ghana star?s Stamford Bridge future in doubt after coach Roberto Di Matteo declared the Ghana surplus to requirements.

With two years left on his contract with Chelsea, Essien will have to return to the English side as his loan deal with Real Madrid has expired.

But with Mourinho back at Chelsea, Essien, 30, is keen to re-join the man he calls ?Daddy?

Essien, who was brought to the Bridge by Mourinho in 2005, said: ?I have got two years left on my contract.

?When Mourinho wants me to do a job for him, I will do it. He is a great manager and everybody is happy to have him back.

?Jose is the right man to take the club forward.?
