Frederic Massara has commented briefly on the situation of Franck Kessié, who was left out of the game against Juve.
The Rossoneri lost to Juventus last night at the Allianz Stadium, after Paulo Dybala came off the bench to score the only goal of the match in the 77′ minute.
Stefano Pioli played the match with Franck Kessié, who was kept at home. The Ivory Coast midfielder, who has been a regular since joining from Atalanta in the summer of 2017, was left out of the match squad. Director of Sport Frederic Massara spoke to Sky Italia today about it:
“It is simply a technical decision,” the former Roma director said. “The coach saw that Kessié was going through a moment of mist. This week he wasn’t able to train at his full capacity and he also had some pains. Pioli decided to not go with him for this match, but we are convinced that Franck will be able to get back to being the player we all know very soon.”
It’s now a break and Kessié is with the national team. It remains to be seen how his condition will be afterwards as with Bennacer and Çalhanoğlu suspended for the Napoli game, he’d be needed.
