43 games for the Club with decisive goals 

FC Barcelona announced Franck Kessie was joining the squad last summer, after the Ivory Coast midfielder's contract with AC Milan ended. The 26 year old had spent five seasons with the Italian side.

Despite not being a consistent starter, he played a key role during the season for Xavi Hernández' side. He featured in 43 games, starting in 16, playing a total of 1803 minutes for the Club, mostly in the second part of the season. Pre-World Cup he was the 19th most used player to have played 12 games. Post-World Cup, he was the 12th most used player.

Allied with his strength, power, and reading of the game, the midfielder has shown his hunger for scoring goals, including at key moments, and for assisting in important games. Kessié performed particularly well against Real Madrid. The Copa del Rey first leg semifinal saw him cause an own goal to put the Club in control of the tie, and in LaLiga, he scored a memorable goal in added time to keep Barça 12 points ahead of their opponents in second place, as well as being goal 3000 scored at the Spotify Camp Nou.
