It was a hectic and challenging match. However, perhaps just stating this would not do the role Kessi played in Coach Pioli’s tactical chessboard enough justice. At the end of another great match for him on a personal level, it was Franck that was the most voted for Rossoneri (with 50%) in the match at San Siro against Verona, finishing ahead of Ibra (17%) and Calabria (16%). Ninety minutes were not enough for the Rossoneri to secure the win, as they were unable to push beyond 2-2. However, for the umpteenth time Kessie's strong performances were visible in the centre of the pitch.
He made many touches, found himself at the centre of multiple offensive moves and was precise and decisive with his passing. Franck's process of development is getting more and more visible and can be seen reflected in his match statistics. The Ivorian midfielder, in fact, made the most ball recoveries of any player on the pitch (11) and finished the game with an 85% pass success rate. What's more, his presence in the penalty area was decisive in halving the deficit as he was involved in the 1-2 own goal. Congratulations Franck!
