Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has showered praise on N’Golo, describing the Chelsea midfielder as a special player.

Asked about playing with Kante in the Chelsea team, Azpilicueta responded: “He is a very special person. I have not seen a player like him in my entire career.

“He covers a lot of ground, reaches the area … when we all run out of battery, he always has an extra.”

Despite having to manage his fitness in the latter stages of the season, Kante was key to Chelsea’s Champions League triumph, as demonstrated when he was named Man of the Match in both legs of our Champions League semi-final win against Real Madrid and the victory over Manchester City in the final itself.
