Bakayoko aiming to prove doubters wrong

After just one season at Stamford Bridge, the midfielder was deemed surplus to requirements. Now, after a summer switch, the Frenchman is finding the San Siro just as challenging to adapt to.

A change of scenery seems not to have aided the form of Timoue Bakayoko, as the midfielder is finding life at AC Milan just as dreadful as his time in West London.

The Frenchman was forced to join the Italian side after new Chelsea boss Maurizzio Sarri declined to include him in his Chelsea squad.

In 12 appearances for Milan, Bakayoko has yet to make much of an impact, and is now a shadow of the player he was just two years ago at French side AS Monaco. 

Bakayoko's unconvincing performances have left Milan considering a replacement for him, as it is being heavily rumoured that they are interested in signing out of favour Fabinho from Liverpool.

Nonetheless, the Frenchman has remained defiant in an interview this week, claiming that he hopes to soon alter the poor opinions that fans currently have of him.

He told 'Sky Sports Italia': "'I don't like being whistled, but I understand it. I hope they applaud me soon. I have done good things but I am only at the beginning. I hope to be decisive and to help Milan re-enter the top four in Serie A."

Bakayoko contnued, by discussing Milan's tactical style: "The 4-4-2 is the formation I prefer, but even in a 4-3-3 I found myself playing well in the last game. My position has changed, but I believe that I have done well. I have been able to help the team more."

The midfielder concluded by insisting his belief that he is playing well: "I am upset about the result against Juventus, but this is football. I am happy with how I played.'

Having fully integrated into the Milan squad, Bakayoko thinks that his best form is not far away. 

He told 'Milan TV': "Maybe I feel better within the team, I am able to store all the necessary information concerning tactical, technical aspects and positioning on the pitch. I feel more confident compared to a few weeks ago. I needed to play for this to happen and now I am finally making progress."
