Tiemoue Bakayoko forgets shirt number and tries to sub himself off in Monaco vs Amiens

FBL-FRA-LIGUE1-MONACO-AMIENS

Monaco enjoyed an easy 3-0 victory against relegation threatened Amiens on Saturday afternoon.

The French side scored three times in seven second-half minutes.

Wassim Ben Yedder broke the deadlock in the 62nd minute, before further goals from Guillermo Maripan and Keita Balde Diao made the points safe.

Tiemoue Bakayoko enjoyed three successful seasons at the club from 2014-2017.

He rejoined on loan from Chelsea this summer and played the full 90 minutes during the victory.

However, he almost didn't play the whole game as he tried to sub himself off late on in the second half.

With Monaco cruising to all three points, they decided to take goalscorer Keita Balde off in the 81st minute.

The board read for number 14 to be taken off, with Jean-Kevin Augustin coming on in his place.

However, Bakayoko, who wears number six, completely forgot what number he was.

The Frenchman used to wear number 14 in his first spell with the club and clearly thought he was still wearing it.

He jogged towards the sidelines, applauding the fans as he went, before being told that he was not being subbed.

Bayayoko looked around completely confused as he couldn't understand what was happening.

But he finally realised his mistake and laughed it off.

That's a great clip. Tiemoue Bakayoko just doing Tiemoue Bakayoko things.

Bakayoko saw the funny side at the time and he also reacted to the incident on Twitter after the game, saying: "Give me back my 14 please 😂😂 #funny".

And Fabregas couldn't help but poke fun at his teammate too.

The Spaniard wrote: "Only Baka could do something like that. I couldn’t stop laughing. Love you bro 🤣👏🏻🙏🏻🤗".

It's good to see Bakayoko hasn't changed since rejoining Monaco in the summer.
