AC Milan midfielder Kessie hails Bakayoko after Empoli win

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie admits he's drawing inspiration from Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Kessie was on target in their 3-0 victory over Empoli, which put the Rossoneri within a point of third place, awaiting Inter's match with Fiorentina.

“There's a long way to go yet. We have to keep going, pick up three points every time and continue to win," Kessie told Sky Sport Italia.

“We just have to work hard and do what the Coach asks.

"I have to continue like this, do better than last season and try to score more goals."
