Tiemoue Bakayoko made his Chelsea debut in the 2-1 win over Tottenham last weekend and the 23-year-old midfielder has revealed he couldn’t wait to play his first game for Chelsea.
“I couldn’t wait to play my first match,” Bakayoko said as quoted on Metro UK.
“When you know you have been bought for €45m, and you arrive with an injury and you are not totally recovered, you have this sensation that you are no use because you cost a lot.
“You want to help your team. And then, in pre-season, we conceded a lot of goals. You also heard everywhere that Chelsea’s transfer business had not been a success.
“All that gives you the determination to get back on the pitch.”
