Ghana legend Michael Essien starred in Istanbul on the night he directed the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League draw.
The final decisions of the ex-Chelsea, Real Madrid and AC Milan stars determined which groups each of the 24 clubs had to join.
A former winner of the coveted title with Chelsea, Essien has been confident that the Blues, who are the current titleholders, can defend their crown by winning them one by one.
The former high-impact midfielder, who played 59 times for Ghana in the senior team, carried out the draw together with his former team-mate Branislav Ivanovic.
