FC Barcelona publicly expresses gratitude to Franck Kessie for his unwavering commitment and hard work. As his time with the club comes to a close, Kessie’s departure is met with well wishes for his future endeavors.
Last summer, FC Barcelona welcomed Franck Kessie to its ranks after the Ivorian forward’s contract with AC Milan came to an end. This marked a significant move for the 26-year-old midfielder, who embarked on a new chapter following a successful five-year stint with the Italian club.
A Vital Player:
Kessie not always had a place in the starting lineup. However, he proved to be a vital asset to Xavi Hernandez’s team throughout the season. With 43 appearances, 16 of which he started, he spent a total of 1803 minutes on the pitch as a Blaugrana player. Interestingly, his role and impact evolved over time, showcasing his versatility and adaptability.
Kessie’s attributes as a player went beyond mere athleticism; his reading of the game and goal-scoring abilities stood out. His hunger for goals translated into crucial moments, often swinging the tide in favor of FC Barcelona. Notably, Kessie’s performances against Real Madrid garnered attention. In the Copa del Rey semifinal first leg, his efforts led to an own goal that gave them an advantage. Moreover, his goal in a league match will be etched in memory as it secured a victory in the dying moments, providing a twelve-point cushion over their closest rival. This goal was also significant as it marked the 3,000th goal at the Spotify Camp Nou.
Franck Kessie’s time at FC Barcelona might be ending, but his contributions and memorable moments will resonate for years to come. His resilience, determination, and ability to shine in critical matches have left an indelible mark on the team’s journey.
