Bakayoko joined Naples this summer. In an interview, he made it clear: "I joined Naples for Gattuso and thank him for letting me come here alive."
"I am very happy to be here. The whole team welcomed me in a very warm way. I get along well with my teammates and I am very happy to find my new home here."
"Yes, of course, Gattuso persuaded me, I am also very happy to join this great team, and then, I have to thank Gattuso for letting me come here alive (laughs, smiles) , I want to thank him in person."
"For me, it's the same in any position. I will play wherever Gattuso asks me to play, and I will go all out."
"Obviously, we have to fight for the top rankings, but now we say that it is too early to win the championship. Our goal is to take all three points in every game."
"I want to play because I haven't played for many months. I want to play, but it depends on the coach. Atlanta is a strong team and their players are very fast."
"We have a good relationship with Conte. He helped me join Chelsea. When I came here, Morata helped me. Now we are opponents, and I obviously only think about Naples on the pitch."
