Bakayoko arrived just as Matic was being sold to Manchester United this past summer.
“I don’t feel that at all. I did have the chance to see him playing when I first came here and we spoke a lot together, and got on very well. He wished me all the best, just as I wished him all the best at Manchester United,” said Bakayoko.
“I have come here to follow my own path, and write my own story.”
