Two properties of former Chelsea and Black Stars midfielder Michael Essien are set to be auctioned following a directive from the High Court (Commercial Division). The auction, ordered by the Deputy Sheriff, involves Essien’s luxurious residences located in the upscale neighborhoods of East Legon and Trassaco in Accra.

The properties, identified as House Number 9 on Stephen Quarshie Crescent in East Legon and House Number 204/205 in Trassaco (Phase 2) Adjiringano, are highly coveted pieces of real estate. According to an anonymous source within the auctioneer’s office, one of these properties is valued between $20 million and $30 million.

Essien’s contributions to football, particularly with Chelsea where he won multiple Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League, have made him a beloved figure in the sports community. His prominence extended to the Ghanaian national team, the Black Stars, where he earned over 50 caps and represented the nation in several international tournaments.

The auction details remain under wraps, with further information anticipated as the process unfolds. The decision has generated considerable interest within real estate and sports circles, given the iconic status of the properties and their illustrious owner.

Michael Essien’s career highlights include winning two Premier League titles, four FA Cups, and a UEFA Champions League title with Chelsea. His robust midfield presence and ability to score crucial goals earned him a reputation as one of the finest midfielders of his generation. Essien retired from professional football in 2020 and has since been involved in various charitable and entrepreneurial activities.
