Former Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit has hailed N’Golo Kante for his impressive performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

According to Gullit, people underestimate Kante because he isn’t a striker that scores goals but insists the midfielder is a vital player for the Blues.

“For me, man of the match was Kante, by far,” Gullit told beIN Sport.

“He works so hard. He was vital. He was vital in the second goal. He was vital in the first goal.

“He could’ve scored a goal himself. He’s a wonderful player.

“A player who is so underestimated by so many people, because people always look at strikers who scores goals.

“But players like him you need. Such a fantastic player.”
