Boss Welcoming Back Bakayogo's Experience

13 December 2016

Zooms back in training ahead of Cambridge

Crewe Alexandra Manager Steve Davis is looking forward to welcoming back flying full-back Zoumana Bakayogo to his squad this weekend after a month out of the team with injury.

Zooms picked up the hamstring problem in the 2-1 defeat to Plymouth in mid-November, but has now returned to full training in preparation for the trip to Cambridge this weekend.

Steve said: "Zooms will train today & all week, so if he gets through this week then he'll be fine for the weekend.

"It shows the importance of having experience in the team. If you take the core of the team out, the ones that have played the games & been in from the start of the season until now - we would struggle.

"It just emphasizes the importance of Zoumana & those ones that have been playing the games. The more experienced players are the most influential players on the pitch so we need them out there."  

"He doesn't do it vocally, he does it in other ways with his determination. We missed his pace getting forward & being a threat with crosses, we've missed that."
