Kessie: 'Taking the next penalty'

Franck Kessie revealed what Stefano Pioli told Milan players after their 2-0 win against Fiorentina and insists: ‘I’m going to take the next penalty kick.'

Kessie scored Milan’s second goal in the Rossoneri’s 2-0 win over Fiorentina.

The Ivorian had failed to convert a second spot-kick and after the game he insisted he will kick the next one.

“I scored the first, I missed the second but I am going to take the third one,” Kessie told DAZN.

The Rossoneri made a video call with their coach Stefano Pioli after the match.

“He congratulated the team, he was happy. It was a very important game,” the 23-year-old said.

Could have Milan close the game earlier?

“We had a great start, Fiorentina must be attacked and we scored two goals immediately. We have no starters, we have a deep team and whoever goes onto the pitch prove he deserves to play."

Tonali started the game to replace the injured Ismael Bennaer.

“It’s not a problem with who I play, I like to play with Bennacer, Tonali or Krunic, I gave the 150% and that’s what I do in every game.”
