Essien resumes full-scale training at Real Madrid
Michael Essien in training at Real Madrid
Essien, on-loan from Chelsea, had trained alone in the previous session since being sidelined by an allergic drug reaction.
He recently returned to Stamford Bridge to help his recovery but he is now working with the Whites in Valdebebas.
The 30-year-old is now in contention for a place in Jose Mourinho's team which will play Valladolid on Saturday in the Spanish La Liga.
Essien has been out of action for close to four weeks.
