Ismael Bennacer has thanked the Milan fans for their “simply incredible” welcome back to the pitch more than six months after his knee injury.

The midfielder tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the Champions League semi-final against Inter in May. He resumed training with the team this week and made his return as a substitute in the 3-1 Serie A win over Frosinone, greeted by a standing ovation at the San Siro. “It was simply incredible. I’m very happy, I’ve been working for a long time and I’ve been looking forward to coming back here. It’s satisfying to be back and now we can start again. It’s been difficult, but I’m not afraid to work hard. I kept exactly to schedule, so I didn’t rush my return after the operation. I’ve learned a lot during this period and I’ll try to give my all for these wonderful fans”. Bennacer told Sky Sport Italia and DAZN. If he manages to regain full fitness in time, the Algerian international could potentially take part in the Africa Cup of Nations in January.
