And such condemnation has continued in pre-season with Bakayoko again failing to impress.

The midfielder was a second-half substitute in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Inter Milan on Saturday, and made his presence felt immediately by giving the ball away within moments of coming on, allowing Roberto Gagliardini to slot home and cancel out Pedro’s opener at the Allianz Riviera.

Bakayoko looked wildly out out of place in manager Maurizio Sarri’s high-tempo style of play (known affectionately as Sarri-Ball) – the Frenchman visibly struggling to keep up with midfield partners Jorginho and Cesc Fabregas.
