Bennacer doesn’t think about Milan release clause

Milan midfield star Ismael Bennacer has claimed he doesn’t think about a €50m release clause included in his contract: ‘I am happy here.’

The Algeria international spoke at a press conference on the eve of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Lille.

The Rossoneri beat Napoli away last weekend.

“We won as a team, it was a tough game but we won it all together, that’s the spirit,” he said.

The Diavoli lost their only game this season against the Ligue 1 side three weeks ago.

“When you lose a game you want to win the following one, we are doing everything we can do win.

“It’s a pleasure [to return to France] and play against a team like Lille, I like playing for Milan,” he added.

The former Empoli midfielder has a €50m clause included in his contract with the Serie A giants.

“I don’t think about it, it’s not my job. I think about the pitch. I am really happy at Milan."

The Rossoneri will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is expected to remain out of action for a couple of weeks.

“I am happy because I am playing and learning a lot [from him],” the 22-year-old said.

“I was a different player one year ago, now I am learning many things. Ibra has made me become a better footballer, he always wants us to be professional. He speaks a lot and he helps us a lot too.”
