Sammy Kuffour has leapt to the defence of former Ghana team-mate Michael Essien amid rumours that he is on the brink of financial ruin.

Reports emerged out of Ghana this week that Essien is struggling financially after a court ordered the sale of two of his properties, believed to be in East Legon and the Adjiringano area of Accra.

It is also claimed the former Chelsea star has been struggling to repay debts from loans taken out in his country, leading to the intervention of the court.

However, Kuffour insists there is no truth to the rumours and has urged media outlets back home to thoroughly comb through the news before reporting on such matters.

“I think we need to protect our own. We are a country that always wants to suppress people. I know Michael Essien very well. People have no idea about the enormous wealth he has,” the former Bayern Munich defender said in an interview with journalist Saddick Adams.

“I had calls from people about Essien’s issue. We need to do proper investigations before we comment when this news pops up. Essien has a family and loved ones. We need to respect them.”
