Tiemoue Bakayoko has said that Milan police put his life “in danger” when they conducted a gunpoint search on him.

The AC Milan midfielder, who is on loan from Chelsea, was stopped by police as they searched for a suspect involved in a shooting.

Footage of the incident, which happened two weeks ago, went viral this week while Milan police justified their tactics by pointing to the seriousness of the situation.

And on Thursday Bakayoko, 27, spoke out about his experience in a video posted on social media.

Bakayoko said:

Making an error is human. I don’t have a problem admitting that. However, the methods they used pose a problem.

It needs to be made known that in the video you don’t see everything, perhaps just the most calm part.

I found myself with a gun a metre away from me, and [so did] the passenger. They really put our lives in danger.

The consequences could have been more serious if I had not remained calm and if I had not been recognised in time.
