Cape Town - Ajax Amsterdam loan signing Bertrand Traore has blasted his own fans after recent criticism towards the forward.

The on-loan Chelsea man has struggled for consistency at the Amsterdam Arena, often being deployed in a unfavored wide role by manager Peter Bosz.

And following their 3-0 win over FC Twente of Sunday, he was sarcastically applauded by de Godenzonen faithful after being substituted in the 60th minute.

His commitment has often been questioned during his loan spell, with Dutch media claiming the Burkina Faso international's attitude evokes displeasure of being sent away from the Premier League leaders.

"I give everything to win," Traore told Goal. "I don't give a s*** about side issues like that. I don't want to speak about other people as well.

"Of course we feel tired as a team. We have played a lot of matches this season, so it's logical that your legs are starting to feel that.

"My focus on this season is very important. After this season, I will see whatever appears in my path. Right now, I’m not focussed on calls and texts with Chelsea coach Antonio Conte. We will have to see what happens."

The 21-year-old has scored seven goals and registered four assists in 27 games across all competitions.
