AC Milan coach Rino Gattuso has rallied to the support of Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Knowing the on-loan Chelsea midfielder was still being hammered in the press after victory over Genoa, Gattuso made a point to talk up the Frenchman yesterday.

He declared: “He deserved an evening like that, at a tactical and physical level he was devastating, he looked like a giant, especially in the first half he seemed to have the magnet.

“I’m very satisfied with Bakayoko, I watched last year’s game against Manchester City, where he was excellent.

“If we have to improve the appearance of winning the ball, he is a player who can give us a great hand, he uses the outside very much and he is an aspect we see improving.”
