Vito Angele amongst other sources are reporting that Ivory Coast International Franck Kessie has been dropped from the AC Milan squad travelling to Turin to face Juventus over disciplinary issues. The midfielder has reportedly been late to practice and has been poor at the sessions these past weeks. Kessie will be dropped from the starting line up for the first time in consecutive games by new manager Stefano Pioli against Lazio and Juventus since he joined the club about two and a half years ago.

Kessie has registered one goal this season while shifting to a left mezzalla as opposed to his usual right. The Ivorian joined Milan permanently only last summer as he was initially signed on a two year loan from Atalanta. The midfielder is being tracked by the likes of Monaco and Wolves.
