Former AC Milan midfielder Massimo Ambrosini believes that the Rossoneri will not miss Franck Kessie while Ismael Bennacer is playing at a high level.
A lot of the speculation surrounding Milan’s summer market has been regarding the arrival of a new central midfielder to help fill the void created after Kessie joined Barcelona. Tommaso Pobega returned from loan to bolster the ranks numerically, but there is still a suggestion that another player is needed.
Despite this, Bennacer has started the season in excellent form and will hope to be a leader of the engine room alongside Sandro Tonali, which means another starter-level player might not be required.
Speaking to DAZN after the 1-1 draw between Atalanta and Milan at the Gewiss Stadium, Ambrosini was asked if the Diavolo are currently missing a player with size and physical presence in their rotations.
“Will Kessie be missed? With a Bennacer like this… but it is also true that the last Kessie was decisive,” he said (via SempreMilan.it).
“Maybe yes, a midfielder is missing. If they find an opportunity, it is worth the effort there. They do not live with anxiety, however, the possible arrival of a midfielder.”
