Tiemoue Bakayoko: I’ve been learning so much from this Chelsea star
Tiemoue Bakayoko has admitted that he's thrilled to be on the same team as N'Golo Kante at Chelsea
Tiemoue Bakayoko has revealed that he has been learning a huge amount from playing alongside N’Golo Kante for Chelsea this season.
The French midfielder is getting used to life at Stamford Bridge since arriving at the club from Monaco in the summer transfer window.
Bakayoko was brought in by Antonio Conte in the off-season after the Chelsea boss deemed Nemanja Matic to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and opted to sell the Serbian to Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The 23-year-old has been getting to grips with life in west London and has made a steady start to his career at Chelsea.
And the midfielder has revealed that he has already been learning a lot by lining up with PFA player of the year Kante at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Bakayoko said: “My role is about linking up well with the player alongside me, whether it’s N’Golo or Cesc (Fabregas).
“We all know that N’Golo was named the best player in the Premier League, so I’ve been learning a lot from him.”
Chelsea return to League Cup action in midweek with a home clash against Everton as they look to reach the next round of the competition.
The Blues won the Premier League title in Conte’s first campaign at the club last season.
