Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been warned that selling Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante will be a huge mistake.

This is according to Manchester United legend Gary Neville who insists Kante is a player who does his job brilliantly.

“When I saw reports over the summer that Jorginho was going to leave, I wasn’t surprised,” Gary Neville said on his podcast on Sky Sports.

“When I saw reports over the summer that Kante might leave, I was shocked. I thought, ‘Frank, he is not a player you want to lose’.

“He is a unique player and every player in that squad must love him. He does that job brilliantly.

“Kante playing in that holding position in a three in midfield, it’s where we always thought he should play,” Neville added.

“It’s a modern phenomenon to play a player in that position who is good on the ball. We’ve seen Xavi and Pirlo do it. But when you think of Fabinho, Fernandinho or Kante, that’s the classic player in that position. They read the danger, they break up attacks and they are a centre-backs’ dream.

“Playing Kante there would seem to be the logical conclusion in keeping him at the club.”
