Kessie: “There’s a long way to go yet; we must follow Bakayoko’s example”

By Oliver Fisher -

Franck Kessie has admitted that AC Milan as a team must follow the example currently being set by Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Kessie was on the scoresheet on Friday evening as the Rossoneri moved within a point of third place following a comfortable 3-0 win over Empoli.

“There’s a long way to go yet. We have to keep going, pick up three points every time and continue to win,” Kessie told Sky Sport Italia.

“We just have to work hard and do what the Coach asks. I have to continue like this, do better than last season and try to score more goals.”

Bakayoko has had a huge resurgence in form since he was booed by the San Siro crowd shortly after his arrival on loan from Chelsea. 

“This is football, when things go badly, everyone jeers,” Kessie continued.

“Now Bakayoko is doing remarkable things, helps the team so much and we must remember if we all follow his example, we can win every game.”
