Franck Kessié said he was looking for a goal as he celebrated another win.

Milan beat Udinese 2-1 on Sunday noon away from home with goals from Franck Kessié (18′), Rodrigo De Paul (48′ pk) and Zlatan Ibrahimović (84′).

The Rossoneri are keeping their first place in Serie A with 16 points from 6 games. Sassuolo are right behind them with 14 points, with Juventus in third place.

“We worked hard on this game, playing in Udine is difficult because they are a physical team that do not let their opponents play. We did everything to find these three points,” Kessié told MilanTV at the end of the match, as reported by

“Ibra? I am very happy to play next to a champion like Zlatan, he is showing his qualities. We have to follow this champion if we want to aim as high as possible. He does everything to help the team.

“My goal? I was looking for the goal. I entered the box and found Ibrahimović looking for a solution. A good goal has arrived.

“Where can this Milan go? We are going through a wonderful moment, the staff of the coach is very prepared and helps us, and we talk in the dressing room every day. We have Ibra who helps us, we must continue this until the end.”
