According to Pietro Accardi, the player has a big potential and will surely contribute a lot with AC Milan.

Ismael Bennacer has just completed his move from Empoli to AC Milan.

And Empoli’s sporting director Pietro Accardi had just praised to say about his former player, saying he will surely fit into what the Rossoneri want.

“Ismael is a warrior, Milan fans will love him,” his words were echoed by Calcio Mercato.

“We have good scouts around Europe and when we find the right profile, we try not to let them escape.”

“Of course, for Bennacer we made several trips,” he said.

“Bennacer is curious, even tactically. He is nice, open.”

Accardi explained: “Everyone in the group loved him. He wants to get to the top and he will get there.”

“I believe that today we can only thank each other because Empoli is a nice place to grow for a young player and he has so much room for improvement.”

“I have an action against Fiorentina on my mind. Ismael recovered the ball, an opponent fell on him and made a cut on his tibia,” he continued.

“He got up and went to retrieve the ball again. Then we gave him seven stitches. The San Siro audience will like it.”

“The fans, in any club, want to see the players fighting and sweating,” Accardi concluded.
