Bennacer discusses ‘difficult’ return and insists Milan ‘believe’ in Scudetto dream

By Isak Möller -

Milan secured three huge points away at Fiorentina this evening, coming back from behind to show off their strong mentality. Ismael Bennacer made his comeback from the injury and looked very good. 

The Algerian had been out for quite some time and Milan certainly lacked a player with his characteristics in recent weeks. Therefore, it was very nice to see him back on the pitch, especially since he performed well.

He earned a 7/10 in our player ratings with the motivation that his passing was spot on, coming on and calming things down for the Rossoneri with his comfort. In an interview with Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, he spoke about the return.

On the long stop…

“When you haven’t played for three months it’s always difficult, it was difficult for me but now I’m happy because I’m fine.”

On the words of Ibra on the Scudetto…

“We believe in it. We are not sixth, we are second. It is normal to believe in it, we want to win. We will do everything to finish first.”

It was not easy to react after Thursday, a victory of character…

“I agree. We were losing and we won. We did well with a great team spirit and we are very happy.”

Milan will take on Sampdoria after the international break and it sure was important to claim the win this evening, seeing as Juventus lost at home to Benevento. Therefore, the gap is once again a bit bigger.

  1. Now we can play with 2 superstars as our defensive and offensive midfielders at the same time..( not just il Presidente ) doing all the hard work with naive and lazy partners in ( Tonali and Meite respectively )
    The latter should pack his belongings ready already and book an advanced ticket back to Torino.
    Pleased to have Ismal back.. we sorely missed you.

  2. So what’s actually the problem playing at home?I think something must be done to bring some few fans to cheer the team up at home , they’re winning all the tough away games and failing even on the easy games at home,
    Vamos to the guys tonight.

    1. My thoughts exactly today. Our away form remains stellar. I hope we find enough motivation to prove we can win at home as well.
