Conte praises ‘excellent’ Milan and reprimands Kessie: “You have to be more careful”

By Isak Möller -

Despite the defeat last night, it’s becoming clear that AC Milan deserve to play in the Champions League. Not only have they continued to perform well in the league, but they also outplayed Atletico Madrid before the red card. 

The Rossoneri were indeed extremely unlucky last night as none of the referee’s decisions went their way. The red card was very harsh and the penalty shouldn’t have been given, as the Atletico player handled the ball first.

Speaking live on Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, former Juventus and Inter manager Antonio Conte praised Milan for the performance last night. As he expressed it, they deserve to be in the Champions League.

“Milan played an excellent match when it was 11 vs. 11. They showed that they deserve the Champions League and can play at high levels. levels. The red card is part of those details to improve and gain experience in this type of competition.

“Kessie? When you get a yellow card after ten minutes you have to be more careful. Up to the 82nd minute, the Rossoneri didn’t suffer. Yesterday’s result means that the next two games are decisive: he must win both games against Porto,” he stated.

Milan will take on Atalanta on Sunday evening and that means they will have to put last night’s defeat behind and look forward with optimism. The UCL group stage is far from decided, after all, with some important games awaiting.

  1. Conte wants to coach Milan.

    He would have done so had Gattuso qualified for Champions League in 2019. So he went to Inter instead.

    Milan is now a beautiful bride for top Coaches. A debt free club with fantastic young players, excellent management and directors.

    And most important of all, The onwers Elliot are simply wonderful. They provide and support the club with finances and they do not meddle into how the club is run. They allow every COG to do their Job.

    Everything is in place for Milan. If we have a winner of coach instead of Pioli, Milan will dominate world football once again

  2. Pioli is a new type of coach that Milan needs and I hope he will stay in the club in the long run!

    After Carlito he is the first coach who actually crafted a team and every Milan fan should see and be grateful for that!

  3. I hope we never see Conte on the Milan bench. Ever. He may only visit the San Siro.Sheva should be first choice if a coaching change happens.

    1. I love the Shevchenko option and suggestion.
      He is doing well with the Ukraine team and I believe he will do more with a team like milan.
