Bennacer in tears during Pioli’s farewell speech – “He’s a very sensitive boy”

By Isak Möller -

Ismael Bennacer broke down in tears as Stefano Pioli held his farewell speech on the San Siro pitch last night. Indeed, it was an emotional evening for everyone and the manager discussed the matter afterwards. 

Pioli expressed his gratitude during the ceremony speech and highlighted the winning mentality that has been brought back to the club. Indeed, by bringing them back to the Champions League and winning a Scudetto, the bar has certainly been raised.

During the speech, as captured by the TV images, Bennacer broke down in tears as the manager has meant a lot to his personal development. In his post-match interview with MilanTV (via MilanNews), Pioli was also asked about the Algerian’s tears.

“Isma is a very sensitive boy, he was already crying two days ago [when the announcement was released]. All the expressions of affection I received from my boys but also from the fans, from the Curva Sud, meant a lot to me, thanks to everyone,” he stated.

The 2023-24 season is now officially over and all that’s left before the summer mercato is the friendly against Roma next week. Bennacer will not get one final ride with Pioli, as Daniele Bonera will be the head coach for that game.

      1. Exactly, and we’ll just have to bare with another random no name moneyball could bee with resale potential from this cheap entertainment selling Americans.

        1. It was a throwback to last year when Tonali cried due to Ibra’s departure and Tonali eventually got sold. They’re just having a light moment of it 😁

  1. Just showed how Pioli is mean a lot for Benna and i’m sure a lot of Milan players especially the scudetto + CL semi final squad also feels the same.

    And how on earth Pioli can say nice things to curva sud after they treated him like sh*t? Pioli is really a nice guy huh.

  2. Pioli understands the game well so no need to bite back curva sud because reunion is possible. At least he has done us a lot. Now we 70% sure of a win when milan is playing.
