Milan midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has insisted that he did not refuse to come on against Bologna on Monday evening.

Milan beat Bologna 2-1 to close the gap on fourth-placed Atalanta to three points in the Serie A table, but the match was overshadowed by an incident in the first half, which saw Bakayoko seemingly disobey Gennaro Gattuso’s orders.

However, the Chelsea loanee later clarified on Instagram: “I don’t agree with being considered as a player who refuses to enter the field when his Coach asks him to and who doesn’t respect his club and teammates.

“I was asked to get ready in case there was a change, so I prepared myself immediately and went to warm up for a maximum of 2-3 minutes, then I was asked to sit back on the bench.

“I think it was between 23 and 26 minutes, and it was when I was sitting on the bench that the Coach spoke to me unexpectedly and I did nothing but repeat his words. Nothing more.

“Things are clear: I never refused to enter the field. It seems to me that the images speak for themselves.

“I had only one wish, to enter the field and help my teammates like I always have and will do until the end of the season. Forza Milan.”
