Real Madrid midfielder Michael Essien believes his team can still win La Liga despite an underwhelming campaign to date.

The Ghana midfielder has gone straight into Jose Mourinho’s side since his arrival at the club and is convinced it is only a matter of time before they return to their sparkling best.



“We are talking about Real Madrid, the greatest club in the world. Every player would want to be here. I’m just Michael Essien and eventually I hope everyone will know me here,” he said.



“It was a difficult start, but sometimes you see yourself in this situation. We have won two straight games and hopefully we can extend the streak it to three.



“Every game is important, and we need to earn the right to get more points and fight for the title.”



Having plied his trade in the English Premier League for the past seven years, his move to Spain has brought with it a host of new challenges.

Essien believes La Liga provides more entertainment than England’s top flight.



“People talk about the Premier League as the best, but La Liga is more fun, you play more football and score more goals,” he said.



”The Spanish league is one of the most important and difficult competitions in Europe and because of that I’m looking forward to having a good season and defending our title.”
