Franck Kessié has urged his AC Milan teammates to emulate the winning mentality of Gonzalo Higuain to revive their Serie A campaign.

The Rossoneri are looking to return to winning ways when they tackle Atalanta on Sunday, after securing a point against Cagliari last weekend.

Gattuso’s men secured a win in their Europa League clash and the Ivorian player believes Pipita is the man to emulate.

“He’s a great player who scores 20-25 goals every season,” Kessié told Sky.

Calabria praises AC Milan teammates

The Italian defender was happy after his team was able to beat Atalanta in Bergamo, and how well his teammates played.

“That’s what we need, he gives a lot to the team and it does so much knowing we can rely on giving him the ball. It’s normal for a team like Milan to have that kind of striker.

“His mentality is to win every time, and he can help the squad in that way too. We must always go onto the pitch with that mentality, like him.”

Milan Fans would be hoping their team revives their season to mount a serious challenge for a Champions League spot.
