Tiemoue Bakayoko joined Chelsea from Monaco this summer for a fee of £40million and Chelsea legend Claude Makelele believes Bakayoko and N’Golo Kante are stronger together.
“I met him [Tiemoue Bakayoko] when I was working in Monaco and I pushed him to make that position his own,” Makelele told Standard Sport.
“He defends with such quality now.
“[Kante and Bakayoko] are so much stronger together.
“Kante runs a lot, Bakayoko is more of a dribbler, he’s more clever and powerful in possession.”
