N’Golo Kante’s role for Chelsea is above any position
N’Golo Kante is one of the most underappreciated mid-filelder of 21st century. He is arguably one of the best mid-fielders of this generation.
Kante’s stats for Chelsea this season are mind-blowing. He can be considered as ‘One Man Army’ for the Blues.
Kante for Chelsea this season:
- Most ball recoveries – 353
- Most successful tackles – 71
- Most interceptions – 72
- Second most blocks made – 70
“For me, I expect more from N’Golo Kante because he can be better than me. He needs more communication with his defenders. You want him to have more responsibility, more power to say: ‘I’m here. You do this behind me and I’ll do this in front of you’.
“He can have leadership in this team. I know Kante is shy, never talks, he just wants to do his job. But I think he can do more,” former French mid-fielder Claude Makélélé said.
Kante is a probably the most kind and generous person in football history. He never show his anger, neither to his teammates nor to anyone else.
Talking about his transfer, Inter Milan is interested in the Frenchman. Inter and Chelsea never even began talks because the club could not afford to get anywhere near the Blues’ asking price, which was above €60 million.
