Conte hails ‘strong and physical’ Bakayoko after first goal for Chelsea

Tiemoue Bakayoko was among the players which found the net in the Champions League opener against Qarabag tonight.

The French scored his firs goal since joining Chelsea this summer from AS Monaco, another summer signing for Antonio Conte. And the manager, when asked about his new midfielder, told the club’s official website: “To score is always important, above all when you play at home in front of your supporters in the first Champions League game. For a young player like him it was very important”.

“Baka is improving his physical condition a lot. He is a strong player, a physical player, and he has to continue to improve and go better in our idea of football. He needs more time than Zappacosta”.
