Bennacer: “When Milan call you can’t say ‘no’, I’m going to die on the pitch for the fans and for the team”

Ismaël Bennacer talking to MilanTV. (@acmilan.com)

Ismaël Bennacer has spoken his first words as a Milan player, stating ‘you just have to go’ when the Diavolo want you.

Bennacer officially became a Rossonero yesterday as the official announcement of the Diavolo arrived weeks after the actual signing of the five-year contract.

There are high hopes from Ismaël, especially after his stellar performances in the 2019 African Cup of Nations this summer, which he won with Algeria, while also winning the Player of the Tournament Award.

“Being a new Milan player? I’m very, very happy to be here, to be a part of this great club and I don’t know what to say, but I’m so, so happy, I’m so glad to be here,” the 21-year-old, who can play as a regista and also as a more attacking midfielder, said in an interview with MilanTV.

Choosing Milan? For its history, that’s one of the biggest clubs in the world. I know when Milan call you, you can’t say no, you just have to go. Winning the AFCON? I wasn’t expecting that, three years ago I wasn’t in the national team and I was patient, I played and now that was incredible what’s happened, so I’m very, very happy.

“A message for the fans? Forza Milan! We are together. I’m going to die on the pitch for the fans, for the team. I’m going to be ready at 2000%”

Right now the team could look like this:

Donna
Calabria Musa Roma Theo
Kessie Bennacer Paqueta
Suso
Leao Piatek

Bench:
Reina, Conti, RR, Strinic, Duarte, Gabbia, Caldara, Biglia, Krunic, Jack, Hakan, Castillejo

I included Leao cause I’m excited to see what he can offer and I do hope Kessie stays and finds his role under Giampaolo. No doubt he can be one of the best in his role. Maybe try Castillejo as a trequartista, kinda like Suso? Gabbia deserves his chance also.

Laxalt, Borini, Silva out

Additional attacker or two in

Swap Correa with Suso, and Hakan with Kessie and I think it will be more like what Giampaolo has in mind.

Right now I put in players that are with the club not rumoured ones and I believe Correa is meant more for SS role not trequartista

Well, Ted. The management want Correa as a trequartista and optionally can be used as SS. Which is why the bought Leao! In summary Leao, Suso and Correa can all alternate.

OGabbs, I think if Correa does arrive Suso will mostly be used as a striker on the right, the way Samu was deployed in last friendlies.

Hakan doesn’t deserve to play for us even 1 minute leave about replacing kassie only modric can take his position if he comes

Disagree Ashraf mate; I believe that as a mezzele in a diamond midfield Hakan will be more than decent; Kessie has his qualities, but has also shown to have low basic football skills like passing, vision, and shooting from outside the box.

He’s a beast. We should look at bringing vidal from barca on loan for the season. I think he will be great as a back up for the year.

Thats not gonna happen. Why would Vidal want to become a loan substitute for milan without European football or even if we participated while he could stay in barca or apparently join inter WHO will play cl and get a prominent place in the squad hierachy ? Besudes of that pretty sure he has a way to high a salary to us affording to only have him as a sub even if he would accept such proposal. Anyways i wouldnt mind him joining us but fairly sure he would only accept if given a major role and a 2-3 year… Read more »
