Franck Kessie has never been far from the back pages in Italy ever since we were linked with a move for the Ivory Coast international, and last weekend was no different, with his actions since being described as ‘shameful’.

Celebrating his game-winning strike with Acerbi’s jersey, and fifth goal of the season, however, has not seen Kessie slapped with another cash fine by the Rossoneri, with Calciomercato noting Milan’s top management have accepted the player’s apology and clarification.

While in action for AC Milan against Lazio on Saturday, the 22-year-old celebrated his game-winning strike by holding aloft the jersey of their opposition’s Italian centre-back Francesco Acerbi.



As individual players, there is no comparison.” Kessie, and Chelsea-loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko, though, have been slammed by the Italian press for the way they celebrated, with Calciomercato writing: “The gesture of Bakayoko and Kessie with Acerbi’s shirt in his hand is unacceptable: a shameful mockery of a newly defeated opponent.” It was not the first time in recent weeks that Kessie has come under the scrutiny of his club, either.

The 27-cap ace was slapped with a fine for reacting angrily to his substitution in the Milan Derby, where he exchanged some choice words with Lucas Biglia on route to the bench.

Kessie has featured in the starting XI of Gennaro Gattuso’s Serie A side 88% of the time this season, as well as each Coppa Italia tie so far.

It is, however, €5m (£4.3m) less than what Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly offered last summer, and saw knocked back due to his importance at the San Siro.
