N’Golo Kante’s performances for Chelsea this season has earned the midfielder the PFA Player of the Year award.
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has hailed the energetic midifielder and Lampard also revealed Kante does a huge work to protect the back three and get the ball quickly to the front three.
Lampard doesn’t think Kante should be relied on to score but admits it’s the only thing Kante hasn’t got in his game.
“I don’t think he’s the sort of player you have to put goals on,” he said on Sky Sports.
“He’s getting in advanced areas. Maybe he can get a few more goals. Other than that what more can he do?
“If you speak to the Chelsea back three, they won’t be able to stop talking about the work he does.
“They look great but he is doing great work in front of them.
“If you speak to Hazard, Pedro, Willian and the frontmen, they will say how much work he does behind them and how quickly he gets the ball into their feet. What more do you want from a midfield player?
“He’s fantastic, he’s humble, he doesn’t want the spotlight. He’s a huge, huge cog in their team.”
