There have been so many names given to Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante over the years, and former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has come up with a new name for the Frenchman.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Cundy called Kante an absolute machine and revealed that he’s the best player known for winning balls.
“He’s the best player I’ve ever seen at winning the ball back,” Cundy claimed. “He defies belief. He gets a toe on something he just shouldn’t and he does it consistently, like seven or eight times a game.
“But it’s not just in defensive areas, it’s all over the park and that’s why his position was changed under Maurizio Sarri.
“Kante’s a machine. An absolute machine.”
Kante has won the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Europa League with his club, as well as the World Cup with France, since joining Chelsea in 2016.
There have been debates about his best position, as Maurizio Sarri and now Frank Lampard have opted to play him in a more advanced midfield role.
