'I am delighted to have joined FC Nordsjaelland coaching staff as part of my development towards my full coaching licence,' he said.

 

'I will also be assisting the players on and off the pitch as part of my role.' 

 

The club's sports director Jan Laursen also shared his excitement about Essien's appointment, saying: 'Michael left a very positive impression here during his visit and we continued the dialogue with him after he had left. 

 

'We felt, he was excited by what he experienced here through our philosophy, the people he met at the club, and that our environment inspired him.

 

'At the same time, Michael's visit gave us a clear impression of how much a coaching staff member on the pitch, as an active part of the training with the players, can contribute and add.

 

'That part we are really looking forward to further developing, and we are very happy that it can happen through and with such a football- and human capacity as Michael Essien is.' 

 

Head coach Pedersen said:'In the coaching staff we've experienced Michael Essien as both curious and hungry for knowledge before and after the training sessions, but at the same time also contributing and giving among the players during the training', he said. 

 

'His career and experience speak for themselves, but when you add his humble and giving personality, this is an exceptional opportunity for us to get a person added to the staff who can help make our environment even more developing for our players and also add valuable input to the coaching team and be our hand on the training pitch. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Michael to FCN.'
