Milan have been forced to “categorically deny” rumours in the African media that Michael Essien contracted Ebola.

The reports have been swirling round several websites this weekend and the club released a statement assuring these claims were “totally without foundation.”

They had even used quotes from Milan Press officer Riccardo Coli, but these too were confirmed as false by the club statement.

“It has come to a big shock to everyone involved with the club but we are optimistic for Essien,” were the fake comments circulated by the Daily Times Nigeria and Newswire NGR.

“He is a very strong person and the Ebola has been caught in the early stages. He’s in experts hands so he should be fine.”

Essien’s team Ghana played a 1-1 draw in Guinea on Saturday, which is one of the hotspots for the Ebola pandemic. 

The player himself also addressed the reports on Twitter and Instagram.

“I'm very fit and very healthy, No truth in the internet rumours that I have contracted Ebola. im 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…!!!”
