If the cultivation of knowledge is important in bhakti, then why does Lord Chaitanya say “I am a fool, so I simply chant the holy names”?

From Stoka Krishna P

The BG inspires us to seek knowledge and end ignorance and in today’s Gita daily U have stressed that we need to have knowledge of KRISHNA in transformational way application wise. But Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in his conversations with Prakasanand Saraswati, when edged on to study Vedanta to enhance knowledge replies that ” I am fool number one and my Guru has ordered me to just chant the Mahamantra”. Krishna says for Knowledge in BG and same Krishna says something else in CC.
Prabhuji, how do we understand and reconcile.
