Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore silences boo-boys with Ajax brace

Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore was back to his best for Ajax yesterday.

The on-loan striker struck twice as Ajax won 5-1 at NEC Nijmegen.

Traore was given a pat on the back by coach Peter Bosz late on after a difficult few weeks for the youngster.

"It's nothing special," he told NIS. "We're going to be professional with each other, but it's not like we don't see eye to eye."

It was just a fortnight ago Traore was being jeered by Ajax fans.

"I am 21 years old and must keep learning," he added. "i must deal with criticism. If you're at a big club that wants to succeed, these things will happen."
