Former Real Madrid and Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has scored his third goal for Persib Bandung to help his team to a 3-1 victory over PS INI on Sunday.
This is the first victory for Persib Bandung in almost a month, following a poor string of results which saw them collect just two points from a possible 15 and drop to the 14th place on the league table, just one place above the relegation zone.
Essien signed a one-year deal in March this year as a free agent. The deal also includes the option of an extension should the Ghanaian performs well.
However, according to local media, the 34-year-old has struggled to adapt to the tough weather conditions in the country.
Nevertheless, he has scored three goals for Persib Bandung.
