Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will go head-to-head when Chelsea play Manchester United later today.
Kante has had an outstanding season with the midfielder earning a PFA Player of the Year nomination while Pogba has struggled to live up to his huge price tag.
Kante is seen by many in the football world as a better midfielder than Pogba (and he definitely is) but Pogba has hit back by claiming Kante doesn’t score many goals.
“I’ve heard Kante is a top, top midfielder, which I agree with,” Pogba told Sky Sports.
“He is a top-class midfielder for what he does. But he doesn’t score many goals, does he? They don’t speak about this.
“They speak about what he does on the pitch. He gets the ball, he passes the ball and he makes the game. Me, I try to do this.
“I score more goals than Kante but they still say Kante does this and does that.
“If you want to speak about scoring goals, you should judge every midfielder the same way.
“They only speak about the transfer and the money. I wanted to say, in real life for a normal person, nobody can be worth £100 million.”
