DENIALS: Michael Essien

MICHAEL ESSIEN has been forced to deny rumours that he is suffering from the deadly Ebola virus, after he was left out of Ghana’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea.

The AC Milan midfielder took to his Instagram account to reassure fans that the stories were completely false and he was fine.

“I’m very fit and very healthy. No truth in the internet rumours that I have contracted Ebola. I’m well & will be training as usual tomorrow. The Ebola virus is a very serious issue and people shouldn’t joke about it.

“Whoever wrote this article is very unprofessional and insensitive…!!! #Jahbless.” Later he added on Twitter: “The true victims of Ebola deserve better and our thoughts & prayers are with them and their families.#sue”

The Italian club was also quick to quash the lies, and the rumour that a club spokesman had confirmed the news earlier in the evening.

Their statement read: “AC Milan categorically denies alleged news from abroad about its members. Such news, totally unfounded, however, have never been confirmed by any employee of our company.”

The threat of Ebola has grown rapidly since the epidemic began in February, with fears that it will spread to Europe and the USA.

According to information from the World Health Organisation dated October 5; as many as 3,865 people have died from the outbreak with Liberia the worst hit.
