N’Golo Kante didn’t win the PFA Player of the Year for no reason, he’s actually the kind of player you hate to miss, and it was proven with his one month absence for Chelsea through injury.

Kante has been key for Leicester City and Chelsea’s title-winning seasons and former France coach Raymond Domenech thinks the Chelsea midfielder is France’s best player and he admits that he would look to sign the Chelsea star before anyone else if he was given a big budget at a major club in the future.

“You can see there are two French national teams. There’s one when he is playing and one where he’s not,” Domenech told Goal. “You don’t see him in the game but if you look out for him, then you notice all the work he does for the other players.

“He’s the symbol. He makes the others better. If I go to a huge club then the first player I sign is him.

“I think Didier Deschamps knows what happens with and without Kante, he will build his team around him. The same for Chelsea, the same for Leicester City.

“He is the player who makes the team better. He is always smiling, you never get any problems from him as a coach. He is extraordinary. If I was in a club then Kante is the first player that I’d sign.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
