Indonesian giants Persib Bandung have parted ways with Ghana International Michael Essien, the club's President confirmed.
The Ghanaian has been inactive since the start of the new campaign due to the country's football regulations on foreign player quota.
President and Director of PT Persib Bandung, Glenn Sugita thanked the Ghanaian for his services at the club.
"We both appreciate the regulations that have been made PT Indonesia New League and Essien also very understanding," said Glenn like BolaSport.com quoted from the page Persib, Wednesday (06/06/2018).
"The point is, we parted well," said Glenn. "It's not just Essien's understanding of ending this partnership, more than that, we, especially me, are very grateful for his services so far," Glenn added.
Meanwhile, the Chelsea legend has been on ambassadorial activities for his former club and recently played in the Ray Wilkins Memorial game against Inter Milan's legends.
Essien has toured many parts of Asia as part of activities to galvanize more support for Chelsea football club.
The 35 year old is also reported to be on the radar of some Singaporean clubs after visiting the country last month.
