N’Golo Kante was an important part of Leicester’s title-winning campaign last term, and the Frenchman ran the show in midfield for the Foxes. He was always full of energy, showed extreme work rate, and protected the Leicester City defence in a way no one can.
Speaking about his former player, Claudio Ranieri believes that with Kante in the team, Leicester City cheated their way to the title, and the referee didn’t know.
He said: “Now I can change more systems. Last season we had one system and beat everybody. With N’Golo we played with 12 players and the referee never counted! This season it is not the same – I found a Plan B where I change formation and players.”
