Algeria international Ismael Bennacer says he produced his best performance in AC Milan colours as they thrashed Juventus over the weekend.
The 23-year-old midfield maestro grabbed an assist as Milan defeated Juventus 3-0 in the Italian Serie A game at the Allianz Stadium.
It was Milan’s first away win over Juventus in Serie A since March 2011 and Bennacer says they need to keep going as they look to finish second in the league.
“It’s the best performance I’ve had at Milan, certainly. We are happy, but we can’t let go now, we are playing every three days and need to keep it going,” Bennacer said on Football Italia.
“There are three games to go, we have to work hard and give our all. We’re on the right path, but we’re not there yet.”
Bennacer has played 18 league matches in the current campaign and Milan are placed third in the league table, level on 72 points with second-placed Atalanta with three matches left.
The former Arsenal FC player also discussed the influence of experienced players Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Simon Kjaer in the team.
“Ibra talks, so does Simon Kjaer. They are experienced players, so we listen and do what they say,” he continued.
“When you have a player like Ibra who says what you have to due to this team, you know that you have to give 200 percent. The coach told us before the game that we had to treat this like a final, and we had to win it.”
Bennacer and his Milan teammates will now take on Torino on Wednesday in another league encounter.
