N’Golo Kante is unarguably the best defensive midfielder in the world, and after winning successive Premier League titles with Leicester City and Chelsea, he helped France win the World Cup during the summer.
However, new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has opted to play Kante in a new role, as he has features the 27-year-old on the right side of midfield, while Jorginho coordinates play from deep.
In his press conference today, Sarri hailed the impact of Jorginho and Kante in his team, but he revealed that he’s even surprised Kante is technically gifted.
Sarri said: “Jorginho in this moment is a very important player for us and he is used to playing my football. He is very useful for me, first of all, but also for his team-mates.
“Kante is a great midfielder, and he is able to play in every position in my midfield. It’s not a problem for him! I have been surprised by the technical qualities of Kante.”
