Players like Diego Costa and Eden Hazard have grabbed the headlines this season but Chelsea legend Dennis Wise believes Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is an unsung hero in the Chelsea team and people are only starting to recognize his importance to Chelsea.
“[Claude] Makelele is a bit like him. He is very much like him. He breaks things up really well and his passing is impressive,” Wise told Chelsea TV.
“He’s an unsung hero and people are recognising what he is doing for the team.
“He closes people down and he shuts hole, protects the back three and I think he’s done fantastic ever since he’s come in.”
