Ajax striker Bertrand Traoré: I'm in best form of career

Ajax striker Bertrand Traoré feels he's in career best form.

The on-loan Chelsea forward scored twice in victory over NEC Nijmegen on the weekend.

"I am currently in the best form of my short career and I'm almost as good as under Guus Hiddink at Chelsea. Almost," Traore said.

He also addressed being booed by Ajax fans a fortnight ago.

"When you get to the top level, you have to accept that. So it goes with every top club. If at Chelsea you don't perform, the fans are also not happy.

"It gave me the signal what I had to do, I had to work even harder. I'm young and want to improve, so then I have to ask myself every game to go to the limit.

"I saw the reaction of the fans not as an insult, but as an incentive. I take it as it is."
