MN: Kessie will return to Italy in the coming hours – injury tests scheduled
Franck Kessie’s Ivory Coast took on Egypt in the Round of 16 of the AFCONs earlier today and they eventually lost on penalties. To make matters worse for the midfielder, he went off with an injury.
Kessie played just 28 minutes of the game as he was forced to be subbed off with the injury, seemingly twisting something. And since it was a knockout clash, the No.79 will now return to Italy and Milan.
This was reported by MilanNews, stating that the midfielder will return ‘in the coming hours’. He will undergo a series of tests to determine the extent of his injury, which Milan are hoping isn’t too serious. Initial reports suggest it’s was a knock to the ribs.
Regardless of his future, sitting on an expiring contract, the Rossoneri need Kessie to compete for the Scudetto this season. Having midfield depth is key and the Ivorian has been an important player in the last few years.
