Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has been immortalized and honoured with a statue in his hometown Accra, Ghana.

A website based out of Ghana claimed that Essien’s statue is not new and it has been in the same spot for quite some time now. But recently someone decided to upload a picture of it on social media and since then it has spread like wildfire.
Here are some crazy reactions to the statue:

Cristiano Ronaldo was angry after his bust in Portugal did not resemble himself.
Just spare a thought about Essien.
