AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso did not hold back on criticising on-loan Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko after Saturday’s 3-2 loss at Napoli.
The Rossoneri had led 2-0 at the Stadio San Paolo, but a double from Piotr Zielinski and a Dries Mertens winner capped a stunning comeback.
Bakayoko was introduced early in the second half when Milan were up 2-1, but he failed to help protect the lead.
“Bakayoko has to learn how to get the ball,” Gattuso said in his post-match press conference. “We must work correctly. It will not be easy.
“One week is not enough to remove the defects of a player. I would have preferred to be managing older, more experienced club players.”
