Nowadays, the trend is for clubs to appoint their club legends as ambassadors, and send them around the world to promote their team and respective league. One man who is doing that for Chelsea is Ghana and African legend, Michael Essien. Have you seen his trip?
The 34-year-old spent nine years at Chelsea, where he became an integral part of their play. Together with the Blues, Essien landed up winning nearly everything in his path, including a UEFA Champions League trophy.
Since retiring from the game earlier this year, the Ghanaian was appointed as an ambassador for the club, and he can be found touring some of the world's best destinations with his former teammates.
This week, though, he and Ashley Cole are in New York City, where they visited the CFC Foundation in Harlem and went up the Empire State Building with the Premier League trophy.
