The Ivory Coast international is confident Milan are going to vanquish Inter and admits that if the Rossoneri are gifted a penalty, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will take it.

The only two players who have had more game time this season than

Franck Kessie



are Gigio Donnarumma and Theo Hernandez and they will be in the starting XI for Sunday’s derby.

It’s not easy to play for Milan, but they signed me and it means they saw something in me,

” Kessié said in an interview with

La Gazzetta dello Sport


A new coach arrived, it took time to understand what he wanted, but when a new coach arrives, it means something is not working and we need to pay more attention.”

Inter climbed the

Serie A

table ahead of Milan, taking the lead last week. When asked if this was a matter Milan should be concerned about, he responded:

No, there are many games left, even if there are apparently many difficulties, we are going to win the derby and return to the top of the table.

“We are a united group that thrives in difficulties. We are working hard and we believe we can win the Scudetto. Everybody knows in Italy you can lose against any team, also the last one, it’s not necessary to be worried.”

When asked about the player who will take the penalty if they are gifted one, he said:

“Ibra, and he will be happy about the result.”
