GdS: Numbers from Salernitana game show Bennacer’s important as renewal talks continue

By Oliver Fisher -

With each game that AC Milan play the importance of Ismael Bennacer becomes more obvious, and soon his renewal will have to be resolved.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) write this morning how Sandro Tonali and Rafael Leao will take the headlines for the victory against Salernitana yesterday, but Bennacer was also among the best on the field as he had the most passes completed (49), tackles won (3) and steals (13) of any Milan player.

Since the beginning of the season, the former Empoli man has certainly been one of the most consistent players Pioli has been able to call upon, so much so that he has now become irreplaceable.

Milan’s midfield revolves around him and that is why it is so important to end any uncertainty over his future and extend his deal beyond the current deadline of June 2024.

The common desire is to continue together and for this reason Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are in talks with Algerian’s new agent, Enzo Raiola. Contacts will continue in the coming weeks, with the hope that an agreement can be reached soon.

  1. Agree!! So many people who don’t watch all the matches and understand soccer fail to see how important and vital Isma is to this team. He constantly is helping the team all 90 minutes.

  2. Yep!

    Leão bashers are simply a bunch of loonies, period.

    The truth is crystal clear: the board must do the utmost to keep him. Leão is really one of very best nowadays on the business, I would even say that in order to find a better player than him, one has to look for a superlative superstar like Mbappe or even a legend like Messi. Yes, our Rafa is that good and has the potencial to be even stronger.
