"It is normal for the fans to expect a lot from Essien, because he is a great player and I know him well from the time he was at Milan. He is in good shape now, not 100% of course, and will help us at the difficult away game against Iraklis, a strong side. I am new at greek football, but I can tell that derby against Olympiakos postponement made me sad, as much as those who love Panathinaikos. Our squad wanted very much to play, it was a good chance to win, but now we have to focus on the next match", said the Italian manager.
