‘I support AC Milan, Juventus wanted me’ Atalanta stlarlet Kessié claims

Atlanta starlet Kessie is arguably the most interesting youth emerged from the opening four Serie A games this season. Scorer of three goals in as much games, the former Cesena ace has released an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, here’s what he said.

You decided to take the penalty kick against Torino...
“The ball was close to Papu Gomez and I went there. He asked me if I was sure to kick it and I said yes. Paloschi came close to us too and told him to let me try.”

Gasperini, meantime, was shouting....
“I heard him, but I pretended nothing happened, otherwise Paloschi would have tried. I thought he was still cold because he had just entered the pitch and I am used to kick penalties. I have scored six out of six with my national team. I am not kicking it the next time, I’ll leave it to Papu or Paloschi. He’s a striker and needs to score”

Is it true that Juventus wanted to sign you?
“After the 2013 U-17 World Cup, even if I hadn’t even turned 18 at the time. When I was a child, however, I used to watch AC Milan mostly. Schevchenko, what a player.”

You’ve also been linked with joining AS Roma...
“No, I know nothing about AS Roma. I was close to joining Sunderland last summer, that’s true, but I chose Italy for their tactical philosophy.
