Nadia Buari, renowned Ghanaian screen goddess and ex-girlfriend of Chelsea midfielder, Michael Essien, says she is extremely worried about the fitness level of the Ghanaian footballer who she describes as a "fantastic player" and consequently, has sent a "get well quick" message to her former love flame.
Commenting on the fitness level of her former boyfriend, Nadia said it worries her as any Ghanaian, and wished him a speedy recovery.
“Off course it does worry me as it worries every Ghanaian because, you know, Michael is a fantastic player.
We are all wishing him a speedy recovery, and knowing very well that it is now that the Black Stars need him to qualify for the African Cup of Nations. So ya, we are all very worried, and we all pray for him to get back soon,” said Nadia.
It would be recalled that during the time of former President Kufuor’s regime, Essien got injured after playing for Ghana. The then President visited him at his base in London, and present in his home was Nadia who had Michael’s legs on her laps massaging them.
