N’Golo Kante has hailed Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley as a player who can play in different positions and has the ability to score.
“He is a good player,” Kante said of Barkley as quoted on Chelsea’s official website.
“I played against him when I was at Leicester and in my first season at Chelsea. He has the ability to score. He can play in different positions: he is a very good no.10 or no.8. He can help us achieve our target this season.
“We have played 3-4-3, and 3-5-2 more often this season, so the key is to adapt.
“What we are trying to do is understand everyone’s roles. I’m just one man in the system. It doesn’t matter who plays alongside me. I haven’t changed the way I play. When a new player comes, it’s about understanding how the manager wants us to play.”
