Damian Suarez, Getafe defender, 11 yellow cards in 20 La Liga games. Klaus Gjasula, Paderborn midfielder, 11 yellow cards in 21 Bundesliga games. And then Ismael Bennacer, 12 yellow cards in 19 Serie A games.
In Europe, no one has been booked as many times as Milan’s regista, having already served two one-game suspensions and well on his way for a third one. Despite this negative habit, Bennacer has been one of the most important players this season.
The Algerian didn’t get off to the best of starts under Marco Giampaolo’s guidance, but since Stefano Pioli arrived, he has been instrumental for the team. According to Calciomercato.com, this has also had an effect on his value.
Having signed him for €16m from Empoli in the summer, Milan can now sell for at least €30m, although they don’t intend to do so. Therefore, the Rossoneri are smiling, though hoping that he can register a few less yellow cards in the future.
