Chelsea midfielder Bakayoko: Monaco move no step back

Tiemoue Bakayoko has elaborated on his decision to join Monaco from Chelsea.

The French midfielder has returned to Monaco on a season-long loan.

He left the Ligue 1 club for Chelsea in 2017 and spent last season at AC Milan.

And Bakayoko views playing for Monaco as an opportunity to reignite his career.

"There was a good opportunity to come back here in a very good project," said Bakayoko.

"Lots of people will perhaps say that I am taking a step back by coming to Monaco but I see it differently.

"My two experiences abroad allowed me to play a lot, contrary to what a lot of people have said.

"My season in Milan brought me a lot in terms of new avenues of football and professionalism. I have taken a lot of positive things away from it.

"The club is what is important today. I do not think about my personal ambitions.

'I want to try to perform well on the pitch to help the club reach its objectives.

"Les Bleus, I think about it, but it will come as and when. I come back with a new standing, I really want to bring to this group what I have learned and to try to transmit more confidence here."
