Kessie: ‘Milan need Higuain mentality’

Franck Kessié believes he and his Milan teammates need to follow the example of Gonzalo Higuain - “his mentality is to win every time”.

The Rossoneri are looking to bounce back from last weekend’s draw with Cagliari when they take on Atalanta on Sunday, and the midfielder points to Pipita as the man to emulate.

“He’s a great player who scores 20-25 goals every season,” Kessié told Sky.

“That’s what we need, he gives a lot to the team and it does so much knowing we can rely on giving him the ball. It’s normal for a team like Milan to have that kind of striker.

“His mentality is to win every time, and he can help the squad in that way too. We must always go onto the pitch with that mentality, like him.”
