AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is going to rely on Franck Kessie despite all the rumours that continue to swirl about his future.
MilanNews reports that the Ivorian midfielder returned to training with the rest of the squad at Milanello today and will therefore be fully available for Sunday’s match against Lazio, so it will be up to Pioli to decide whether he is in the best condition to start or whether to keep some continuity in midfield.
Kessie is vital and his quality is not in question, while he has always proved to be an exemplary professional so any allegations about his possible non-commitment to the Rossoneri cause are wide of the mark.
Of course, the words he uttered at the Olympics about a desire to stay are still ringing in the ears of the fans, so it is also up to the player himself to move things forward while rumours persist about his renewal. The distance between supply and demand is there, the suitors are ready to offer him big money, but in the mean time some important games are coming up where he can prove his worth.
