Chelsea’s Bakayoko: ‘I am better player than N’Golo Kante’

Tiemoue Bakayoko claims he is better than his Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kante.

Kante has been Antonio Conte’s key man in midfield since his arrival at Stamford Bridge and was crowned PFA Player of the Year last season as he helped guide Chelsea to the Premier League title.

But Bakayoko, a £40 million summer signing from Monaco, believes his France and Chelsea teammate does not offer more than him on the pitch. When asked about being left out of France’s squad, Bakayoko told Canal+: ‘I’m disappointed.

Kante returned from his hamstring injury against Manchester United. ‘I believe in this World Cup, it’s still my goal.

I play for a big club; I think that can work in my favour. ‘I feel [Adrien] Rabiot, Kante, [Blaise] Matuidi, [Corentin] Tolisso are not better than me.

I respect the coach’s decision and I also respect the players who were called up – they are talented, some are friends of mine. ‘I’m proud that they were called up. I’d like to be with them. ‘But I’m not below them.’
