MN: Kessie has a chance to redeem himself at a familiar stomping ground

By Oliver Fisher -

Franck Kessie must put his bad start to the season and Tuesday’s red card behind him and focus on another decisive performance against Atalanta.

As MilanNews recalls, Kessie fittingly put the decisive stamp on the season back in May when he scored a brace of penalties to ensure Milan’s return to the Champions League. He played 50 games in 2020-21, with 14 goals scored and 6 assists provided, gaining the nickname of ‘The President’.

However, the start to the current season has not been as sparkling, as he missed a penalty against Lazio and has not looked his usual self, with Tuesday’s match against Atletico Madrid being the point of realisation for many.

Within half an hour, by committing two fouls, he got a red card from Cakir that was harsh but also avoidable. Then there is the non-renewal of his contract with rumours about a move to PSG and Tottenham hanging over his head.

Nonetheless, Sunday at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo presents a chance for the Ivorian to begin to redeem himself, in a comfort zone of sorts. Kessie has proved to be a fundamental player, and the hope is that top form will return, along with a renewal of course if that is the case.

    He will come back and fix everything because he wants to stay at Milan forever.

    1. ABDULRAHMAN says:

  3. lutfi says:

  4. micah97 says:

    Kessie should be a rotation option when we want to rest Tonali or Bennacer. Do not start him. He will cost us games

  5. Milanello says:

    Mmm.. Nope. He doesnt need to prove anything

    Let Tonali – Benacer play, Kessie is a backup right now. He can come in on 78th mins

  6. Shal says:

    I would let him play only the games we will be winning 3-0 or more. And only for last 20 minutes per game max. Saboteur and betrayer.
    He even doesn’t respect his current contract obligations, AC Milan fans love (if any left not disappointed), and the chance a legendary club gave him bringing him to the scene.

  7. Muktar Ibrahim Bello says:

    I don’t know y fans are always ungrateful to players, to me, kessie has done nothing wrong, Milan are doing business so they have to pay players well or else these type of saga continues, and those who are saying he (kessie) caused Milan the first game they are wrong, coz all of them were shecky and showed their inexperience and in the second game against At Madrid we all saw what happened, the referee showed clearly that he is against Milan, and so At madrid must win at all cost, if not I see no reason why kessie should be given a red card and again award a controversial penalty like that. and it too early for u guys to forget his contributions. Anyway let me reserve my comments.
