Show me a defensive midfielder in the mould of N’Golo Kante and I’ll show you a player who picks up a lot of yellow cards and even red cards. However, Chelsea’s Kante who’s famed to be a destroyer in the midfield and wins ball for his team every now and then rarely gets a yellow card and has never been issued a red card so far for Chelsea.
Didier Drogba believes he has a trick up his sleeve with the way he smiles.
Drogba said: “It’s amazing to see him play. He reminds me of [former Chelsea midfielder anchorman Claude] Makelele. You look at him and it’s like he hasn’t run at all during the game because he’s never tired.
“When he makes fouls, he smiles at you and you can’t even give him a yellow card. He’s really smart.
“The team looks really good.”
