Kessie: “We started off badly but now we must take advantage of this positive moment”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie has preached the importance of capitalising on the current positive mood surrounding the club to reverse their poor start.

Milan will be looking to win their fourth Serie A game in a row when they host a resurgent Hellas Verona side at San Siro on Sunday.

Stefano Pioli’s side have actually won their last five games in all competitions when factoring in the successes against SPAL and Torino in the Coppa Italia.

With the top six now firmly in reach, the Rossoneri are aiming to build on their momentum which has coincided with the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who will miss the game due to flu – but Ivan Juric’s side will not be easy opponents.

Kessie was interviewed by Sky Italia, and his words were transcribed by MilanNews.it.

“We started off badly but now we must take advantage of this positive moment to reach our goals,” he said.

The Ivorian has been given the nod to start alongside Hakan Calhanoglu in the centre of midfield, with Ismael Bennacer suspended and Rade Krunic injured.
