Stories and facts

Throughout the years, Ghanaian footballers have adorned the English Premier League with their exceptional skills. While over 20 Black Stars players have graced the league, standout figures like Michael Essien and Tony Yeboah have captured attention. However, only a select few have achieved the pinnacle of success by winning the English Premier League. Here, we highlight three Black Star players who have secured this prestigious accomplishment by winning the English Premier League.

Micahel Essien.

Claiming the top spot on the list is Ghana's midfield maestro, Michael Essien. Signed by Jose Mourinho from Lyon in 2006, Essien swiftly established himself as an indispensable presence in Chelsea's midfield, playing a pivotal role in clinching multiple Premier League titles for the Blues. Essien's noteworthy achievements include winning the Premier League twice with Chelsea during the 2005–06 and 2009–10 seasons, making him the sole Ghanaian player to boast multiple English top-flight titles.

Michael Essien accumulated 168 appearances in the English Premier League for Chelsea, from 2005 to 2014. During this period, Essien showcased his prowess by netting 17 league goals and contributing 10 assists, leaving an indelible mark on the history of the prestigious competition.

Second on the list is Jeffrey Schlupp, a product of the Leicester City youth academy. Initially deployed as the left-back during Leicester's impressive season start, Schlupp seamlessly transitioned into a midfield role as the campaign progressed. Unfortunately, his career faced a setback when a hamstring injury kept him sidelined for six weeks. Upon his return, Schlupp played a crucial role in Leicester City's season, significantly contributing to their unexpected title triumph in the 2015–16 season. His influential performances led to Schlupp securing the Leicester Young Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year, surpassing contenders Demarai Gray and Ben Chilwell.
