Kessie squared up to Biglia after being substituted and had to be held back by teammates.
Kessie later said, “It was the adrenaline of the match situation, I was frustrated coming off and really wanted to do more. I took it out on Lucas and it was a mistake, I apologised afterwards," Kessie told Sky Sport Italia.
“He is older than me and I should learn from him. I'm sorry."
Biglia also spoke of the incident.
“Franck knows what I said and we clarified the situation afterwards. We all want to win, but this is not something we should do in front of everyone. Maybe save it for the dressing room.
“We above all feel bad for this embarrassing scene, I feel ashamed of it and apologised to the lads and Coach in person. It was not what we wanted, we embarrassed the club we represent and it won't happen again."
