Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has questioned the decision of Didier Deschamps not to select him for the France national squad for the current international break. Bakayoko was also not involved for the pair of World Cup qualifiers in October.
Bakayoko believes N’Golo Kante and the other midfielders selected ahead of him aren’t better than him. He insists he is as good as those selected ahead of him.
“I am disappointed,” said Bakayoko as quoted on Daily Mail.
“I believe in this World Cup, it remains my goal.
“I play in a big club, I think it can play in my favour.
“I think [Adrien] Rabiot, Kante, [Blaise] Matuidi, [Corentin] Tolisso are no better than me. I respect the choices of the coach and I also respect the selected players, they are talented, they are friends.
“I am proud that they are selected, I would like to be with them. But I’m not worse than them.”
