Chelsea loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko has found himself in hot water over in Milan this weekend.

As reported by Calcio Mercato, the Frenchman has been caught up in a social media debacle following his behaviour after Milan’s victory against Lazio.

Defender Francesco Acerbi had been involved in a running spat with a number of Milan players before the game and in a bid to put an end to the matter, Bakayoko offered to swap shirts with Acerbi after the full-time whistle as a peace offering, at least that’s what it looked like he was doing.

Instead, the midfielder and Ivorian Franck Kessie held it up towards the Milan fans like a trophy, gloating after Milan’s victory.

The act has led to backlash in Italy towards the pair, who have since apologised to Acerbi. Gennaro Gattuso, a manager who has publically voiced his displeasure about social media in the past, has also criticised his players.


Should Chelsea give Bakayoko a Stamford Bridge lifeline?
