HE MAY be a big deal now, but gifted Ghanian Michael Essien was rejected by Manchester United for being too short.
The Chelsea midfielder has revealed he had two trials at Old Trafford, but was twice rejected because of his stature.
He said: “I had two trials at United, but I was seen as too small.
“I think Sir Alex was looking for a certain type of player and I wasn’t the one then.”
