Tiemoue Bakayoko Forgot His Own Shirt Number And Tried To Sub Himself Off

Tiemoue Bakayoko produced moment of the weekend for Monaco after forgetting his own shirt number and trying to sub himself off.

Monaco led 3-0 against Amiens and Bakayoko heard it was time for number 14 to leave the field.

The on loan Chelsea man then jogged over to the touchline - before being informed he's number six and not 14.

The French midfielder wore the number 14 during his first stint at Monaco and the number currently belongs to winger Keita.

He also wore the 14 shirt at Chelsea as well as while on loan at AC Milan last year.

Bakayoko saw the funny side to it and replied to the video asking if he can have his old number back.

Cesc Fabregas, who currently plays with Bakayoko in France, also tweeted about the incident joking it was typical Bakayoko.

Other fans also chimed in with their responses to the gaffe.

The 25-year-old moved back to Monaco in the summer on loan after being deemed surplus to requirements by Frank Lampard.

He was given chances in pre-season but he failed to make an impression aside from passing a ball out of play.

The midfielder made a name for himself as part of the Monaco side that won Ligue 1 in 2017.

That squad also featured individuals such as Kylian Mbappe, Fabinho and Bernardo Silva who've all gone on to achieve great success.

Perhaps he can reignite his career again under Leonardo Jardim.
