Lucas Biglia admits he felt sick to his stomach for weeks after his derby scrap with Milan teammate Franck Kessie.

 

The pair brawled on the bench during Milan’s 3-2 defeat to Inter in March, and Biglia was unhappy with his role in the incident.

Further fines were later imposed on them but Biglia admits he doesn’t have any issue with Kessie.

“I felt sick to my stomach for 3-4 weeks because I don’t like making a fool of myself,” the Argentine told DAZN via Football Italia.

“I didn’t hold it against him, I wanted to show the need for support of a teammate who was entering the field.

“I have nothing against Franck. Indeed, I have a great relationship with him. What I teach my children is, above all, the value of life.

“I have a son who loves football. When he comes home, he asks to play. He must know first of all that sport must be played with values.

“That’s why I felt so sick about the incident with Franck because, for me, there are values before football, which are those of life.

“Us footballers play 3-4 hours a day, then we have 20 where everyone is each to their own. We’re normal people and we have to prove it to people.”

AC Milan are a point adrift the fourth spot in Serie A – which means they have to win their final game and hope for a slip up for Inter or Atalanta to qualify.
