N’Golo Kante will for the first time return to his former stomping ground — the King Power Stadium, after a summer move to Chelsea.
Claudio Ranieri has urged Leicester’s supporters to give N’Golo Kante a welcome return to the King Power Stadium when Chelsea visit this weekend.
“I hope our fans give him a warm reception because he was our champion,” Ranieri said. “It’s important to remember what he gave us.
“I am not surprised how well he has done at Chelsea. He’s very good player. But I think here he was more able to play better than [at] Chelsea. Here all the light was on him. At Chelsea there are so many champions and he’s another one.”
Many Leicester fans are disappointed with Kante’s move to Chelsea, and we’ll see whether they’d stick to their manager’s advice.
