Bakayoko must improve — Gattuso

AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has opened up on Tiemoue Bakayoko’s difficult start to the season, amid reports the Chelsea midfielder could have his season-long loan deal with the Serie A side cut short.

The 24-year-old was shipped out on loan by the Blues in the summer after an underwhelming first season in the Premier League following his big money arrival from Monaco.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in July, replaced Bakayoko by bringing in Jorginho from former side Napoli, whilst he also secured a loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Bakayoko’s misery has continued, with the Frenchman yet to start a league game for the Rossoneri this season.

Gattuso has admitted that the midfielder is struggling from a lack of confidence and has also hinted that he’d have preferred to see his side add a more experienced midfielder to their squad in the summer.

“Bakayoko has to learn how to get the ball,” said Gattuso.

“We must work correctly. It will not be easy.

“One week is not enough to remove the defects of a player. I would have preferred to be managing older, more experienced club players.”

It is not the first time Gattuso has had to discuss this midfielder as thus far Bakayoko has made only six appearances for Milan, including just two starts, both of which came in the Europa League.

Reports in Italy over the weekend suggested that Gattuso’s side could even be tempted to bring an early end to his AC Milan stay. (Goal.com)
