AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie showed what the Rossoneri will miss when he leaves as he won the ball back more than anyone else against Atalanta, a report claims.
As was noted in the Lega Serie A match report of Milan’s 2-0 victory over Atalanta on Sunday evening (via Milan News), Kessie recovered the ball eight times during the game which is more than anyone else on the pitch.
The next best player in this regard was Fikayo Tomori who had a very strong game along with defensive partner Pierre Kalulu.
Kessie’s work in the midfield was key to making sure that the Rossoneri did not fall behind and let the pressure start to get to them.
The Ivorian is leaving the club on a free transfer at the end of the season as he could not agree on terms for an extension during the season. Milan will need to replace him during the summer.
