Michael Essien Ebola reports are fake - AC Milan

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien was caught in the middle of a hoax that claimed he had the deadly Ebola virus.

Rumours emerged on Sunday night that the Ghana and AC Milan midfielder had contracted Ebola while on international duty.

Reports originating from West Africa and Twitter began to emerge, with one source even using quotes from a 'spokesman' of the Italian club.

Riccardo Colli - who does work for the club - is reported to have said: "It has come to a big shock to everyone involved with the club but we are optimistic for Essien.

"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."
However, after the story started to create a stir on social media, AC Milan sources quickly moved to scotch the claims, insisting any reports are fake and that no interviews had been given to Nigerian media.
