Bakayoko proves Chelsea he is not a flop as he revives his career at AC Milan

19 November at 19:00
Tiémoué Bakayoko arrived at AC Milan this summer after an extremely disappointing season at Chelsea under Antonio Conte. It was a surprise for many because the Frenchman did very well at Monaco two years ago and helped the team achieve a historical result in the Champions League. However, now it seems that he is finally finding his old form and can contribute at the San Siro during this difficult period.

But it did not look so well even under Gennaro Gattuso. After his debut against Napoli he was targetted by the fans and deemed not good enough, and even Gattuso had regretful words towards the midfielder. However, Bakayoko did not give up and continued working hard and is now collecting the fruit from this.

At first he was just a bench option for the Rossoneri, but eventually, as injuries cumulated, the Frenchman started to gain an increasingly important position in Gattuso's plan. With the absence of Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura, he is now an automatic starter and has taken responsibility.

During the last weeks, he has shown what people admired about his game at Monaco, combining technique and great physical strength and showing himself as a modern midfielder capable of contributing both in the defensive and offensive phase.

His most recent performance was against Italian champions Juventus in which some experts and journalists even considered him the best player of the match on the Rossoneri side.

He showed exactly what is described above, physical strength and technique and had some impressive runs. There is still some rustiness and insecurity due to the fact that he is playing in a new country and league and after a disappointing season. But if the constant growth continues, AC Milan fans can be sure that they will have a reliable midfielder at their disposal.
