Kessié reveals turning point for Milan

Franck Kessié welcomes Soualiho Meïté at Milan and reveals a 5-0 defeat against Atalanta in 2019 was a key turning point for the Rossoneri.

The Diavoli are enjoying a three-point lead over Inter on top of the Serie A table, but things looked very different for the Rossoneri one year ago as they were far from a Champions League placement and lost 5-0 against Atalanta in December 2019.

“That game was a turning point for us,” Kessié told Il Giornale.

Kessie: 'Zlatan can still take penalties'

Milan midfielder Franck Kessie said he would allow Zlatan Ibrahimovic to take penalties for the Rossoneri ‘if he feels like it’.

Ibrahimovic missed a penalty against Hellas Verona and was amusingly self-deprecating after the match, saying he would ‘leave the next one to Kessie’.

The midfielder has grabbed the opportunities from the spot but revealed he could give it back to Zlatan if the Swede ‘feels like it’ during a game.

Pioli 'not surprised' by Milan response

Stefano Pioli was ‘not at all surprised’ that Milan bounced back immediately to beat Torino, but the injuries and suspensions are still causing problems.

The Rossoneri put the defeat to Juventus behind them with a 2-0 victory at San Siro, decided by Rafael Leao and a Franck Kessie penalty.

Considering Roma and Inter go head-to-head tomorrow at 11.30 GMT, their lead could even extend at the top of the table.

Milan: Kjaer returns against Benevento?

After the short winter break, Milan should have Simon Kjaer back from injury and Franck Kessie returns in the middle against Benevento.

Tuttosport reports the Danish defender returned to training after a month out with a muscle problem and could be called up for the match against Benevento on January 3.

Kessie should return to the midfield as well, after having sat out against Lazio due to a one-match ban.

Theo Hernandez, however, has been stopped by the Sports Judge for his fifth yellow card and Diogo Dalot is expected to take his place at left-back.

Conte wants a 'Kessie type' for Inter

Antonio Conte has asked Inter for a Franck Kessie type of midfielder, it’s reported, but realises N’Golo Kante is out of the question from Chelsea.

The coach had his transfer summit with directors today at the training ground and multiple sources including La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sportitalia and TMW all claim Christian Eriksen is on his way back to the Premier League, with Radja Nainggolan moving to Cagliari on loan.

They will be replaced by someone in the mould of Milan midfielder Kessie, a more rugged figure that Conte has requested for his squad.

Tonali out against Lazio?

In addition to absentees Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie, Milan could have to cope without Sandro Tonali against Lazio on Wednesday.

La Gazzetta dello Sport writes the former Brescial midfielder struggles with a muscle problem, forcing him to quit halfway in the 2-1 win over Sassuolo on Sunday.

The report highlights the injury adds to the one of Bennacer and the suspension of Kessie, meaning Stefano Pioli could have three of his most important midfielders unavailable against the Biancocelesti.
