Chelsea striker Timo Werner has hailed Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante as a special player.
“We have so many good players! But one is special, even if many know how good he is: N’Golo Kanté stands out in real life,” Timo Werner said.
“What he runs away from the ball and what kind of competitor he is in training – unbelievable. If you think he can’t get the ball, then he’ll steal it from behind you. This is impressive.
“Although I knew beforehand that N’Golo was probably the best No.6 in the world, he always surprised me positively in training.
“Having him on your own team is a blessing. Even offensively, he just marches so much. And what’s more, he’s just the dearest person on earth.
“As an example: he is knocked down from behind and laughs at himself first. It’s really impressive how someone can have such peace of mind as N’Golo.
“It is something special to be able to play with him.”
