While Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko hasn’t quite had the kind of first season he would have liked in the Premier League, manager Antonio Conte has backed him to improve next season.

The 23-year old joined from Monaco last summer but has so far yet to live up to his hype.

However, the Frenchman still has time to make his mark – according to Conte.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says Cristiano Ronaldo will have recovered from his ankle injury in time to face Liverpool in the Champions League final later this month.

The club’s all-time record goalscorer was replaced at half-time of Sunday’s 2-2 Clasico draw with Barcelona after being injured while scoring his side’s first equaliser.

Real have not announced how long they expect the Portugal international to be sidelined for, but Zidane believes Ronaldo – and fellow walking wounded Isco and Dani Carjaval – will be fine to face Jurgen Klopp’s Reds on May 26.

He told a press conference to preview Wednesday’s LaLiga clash with Sevilla: “They are all going to arrive at the Champions League final.

“The worst is Cristiano, because it’s just happened, but he’s fine.

“Isco will train with us normally and Carvajal has a little way to go, but physically he is working well.”
