N’Golo Kante has been a revelation since his move to the English Premier League from France. He has been a key player back to back for both Leicester City and Chelsea, and has led the midfield of both teams to great heights.
Arsenal legend Martin Keown is in awe of the 25-year-old’s work rate and quality in midfield, and says he has set a new standard for other players in that central midfield position.
“In terms of his specific job, Kante has revolutionised the central midfield role. He has ripped up the coaching manual on what you expect from midfield players,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“It is incredible how he freewheels around the pitch. Every tackle is like a dagger in the heart of the opposition. He goes round putting out fires all over the pitch.”
