GdS: Kessie must set the record straight as July interview threatens to backfire

By Oliver Fisher -

The speculation surrounding the renewal of Franck Kessie continues to rumble on, but in the meantime the player is not honouring a promise he made.

La Gazzetta dello Sport writes how during the Olympics he gave an exclusive interview to the paper in which he made the declaration: “When I return from Tokyo, I fix everything. I just want Milan, at least for my entire football career.”

That was back on July 25, and still no signature has arrived. In the meantime as the fans and the Milan management continue to wonder what fate awaits the Ivorian, his agent has received offers more than the €6m net per season that Milan are willing to pay.

Kessie’s performances have dropped in recent weeks and that may be a coincidence, but the red card he received in the Champions League which ruined the game does not help.

Declaring in the media that he will sign for life and in the meantime his agent Atangana is speaking with other clubs is not a good look, so now the player is called upon to publicly set the record straight again.

    I don’t understand how Pioli does not see that Kessie is currently useless.

  2. Shiva says:

    There is nothing to set straight. He had one… let me say that again since people seem to forget, just ONE good season. He is not worth 8 million, he is not worth 6.5 million management is offering. If he starts performing as he did last year, he may deserve double what is is earning now, and he should thank his lucky stars he got to renew.

    1. Br says:

      I agree with you. Actually, this is blessing in disguise for us. He can go, after only one good season

  3. melcu says:

    Sandro Tonali and Brescia agreed for a lower transfer fee and salaries because last year the boy was not at his best but Kessie wants 8 mil for what? I rather see him leave for free an play Pobega

    1. OluwaSky says:

      I agree. I’ve always want to see Pobegba in the starting xi… Kessie is already loosing form and Lilli makes a lot of mistakes with the squad by bringing in Giroud and giving out James Peter Hauge…

    milan always prepared for his potential departure. deciding the renewal are in his hands. he should have accepted milan generous offer last summer. so he could focused more on playing. but now, his current self is the worst in milan shirt…even tho he only got it right last season. what a pity. seeing him underperforming…

  5. Milan fan from Nija says:

    Kessie brings no value. He should not even be allowed to sign now that he has kept the club in this suspense. He should be sold in January . Sane Giroud should go in January. Pobegba and Hauge should return in January. Milan needs to get Onuachi from Belgium now. Zlatan is no longer fit to remain in the team. His high income and permanent position on the injury list is frustrating to the players. His should go in January by mutual consent. Leo and Rebic should continue their good service.

    Get him out of the squad and sell him as soon as possible.
