Chelsea star, Tiémoué Bakayoko has expressed regrets about how his time at Chelsea which led to a loan move back to Monaco last summer.

The midfielder told French publication, L'Equipe that he wasn't satisfied with how things turned out.

“I didn’t immediately think it (Monaco) was the best option because I really wanted to play with Chelsea,” he said

“But I felt that it wasn’t going to go the way I wanted it to and Monaco came along. It became a matter, of course.”

“I played a lot in my first season of adaptation, contrary to what has been said,” he added.

“The second was to be the confirmation season, and there was this change of coach (Sarri’s arrival).

“There are also things I could have done better. Compliments are easy to hear. A good self-criticism is what makes you evolve.

“When I leave Chelsea, I have a feeling of failure because it’s a club I loved.

“There was a trigger because I had gone through all the stages and it was like I had a break in my ambition. I couldn’t do enough. Now I work a lot more.”

Chelsea signed Bakayoko from Monaco for £36m in 2017 but failed to live up to expectations and was sent on loan to AC Milan and Monaco.
