Chelsea new-signing Tiemoue Bakayoko has credited club legend Claude Makelele with shaping up his style of play during his formative years.

Makelele was the technical director at Monaco during Bakayoko’s youth years at the side.

The 22-year-old has joined the Blues in a deal worth £40m from Monaco.

“Makelele helped me greatly,” Bakayoko said. “When he arrived at Monaco I wasn’t a very, very good player, but I had a lot of discussions with him, he gave me a lot of advice, and he allowed me to play my style of football more simply.”
