Franck Kessié says things are different under Rino Gattuso than they were under Vincenzo Montella and focuses on Lazio after beating Roma.
Milan won their fifth match in a row yesterday, beating Roma at Stadio Olimpico with goals coming from Patrick Cutrone (48′) and Davide Calabria (74′).
It was the first in a very difficult string of games for Milan, who face Lazio, Inter and Arsenal in their next three matches, but Kessié takes it one game at a time.
“We did well to bring home the three points,” he told Premium Sport.
“Coach Gattuso? He is making us work harder, especially on tactics. With Montella we did very little work in training, but it’s different with Gattuso and you can see the results on the pitch.
“The locker room atmosphere is the same as it always was, the difference is that now we work harder. It’s like a family here and the results are arriving.
“The next games? We are immediately thinking about the game against Lazio, then we’ll think about the other matches. Step by step, we think about one game at a time.”
Speaking to MilanTV, the 21-year-old said: “The victory was fundamental for everyone. I’m very happy. The team is improving step by step. When you raise your game you must carry on, especially if you are a big club, you have to keep winning. This was a great result, but we can’t stop here, we still have to work so much. Sitting out one game helped me as well as playing 50 minutes against Ludogorets.
“I can still give a lot on Wednesday. Calabria? He must pay for dinner now. Lazio? We need to rest now and start training on Monday ahead of Wednesday’s match.”
