Franck Kessié has stated he was never asked to leave and claimed ‘we need to understand what Giampaolo asks to play the best’ after Milan’s win.
The Rossoneri defeated Brescia 1-0 on Saturday and got their first win of the season. Kessié was chosen ahead of Fabio Borini to start in midfield and played his part in the victory of the Diavolo.
“The important thing was to win and that’s it,” he told MilanTV. “It’s normal that the games go like this. We played well in the first half, in the second we descended. The league has just started and physically we are a bit low. I arrived later than the others but I’m working hard to recover.
“Giampaolo’s requests? It’s a different job, I used to play 4-3-3 and now 4-3-2-1. We need to understand what he’s asking of us and do it. The growth of Milan? It’s a good group, we must work together to achieve our objectives. The away trip to Verona? First there is the international break. We go to the national teams to play and when we return we’ll think of Verona.”
Speaking in the mixed zone, Kessié said: “Our league started against Udinese but today it was fundamental to win, which is what we did. My future? The squad never told me to leave, they just asked me to stay. I’m very well here, I still want to give my contribution. This year there are many players in this role, also because of the last signings and there’s a coach who plays with a new formation. We need to understand what he asks to play the best.”
