Arsene Wenger has praised Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante. Kante is said to have developed himself to become a complete player!
N’Golo Kante received great praise after bringing Chelsea to win the 2020/2021 Champions League. The Blues beat Manchester City 1-0 through Kai Havertz’s goal in the final at Do Dragao, last Sunday (30/5/2021).
Despite not making goals or assists, Kante is crucial in Chelsea’s midfield. He mobilized the team’s defense so that it was solid and difficult for Man City to penetrate.
As a result, Man City only had one chance on target throughout the match, despite having more possession of the ball. Kante is considered to be a player who sews Chelsea’s midfield, determines the rhythm of the game, and is the key to the team’s game transition.
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Kante has added dimension to his game. Not only is he adept at grabbing the ball and starting transitions, now he can also initiate attacks.
N’Golo Kante has added something to his game. Before he took possession and made good passes, he used to be a great ball catcher.
I said amazing because he won crucial balls without making any fouls. But now he’s able to hit with the ball and make good passes in the final third.
“That’s why I believe he is the best all-round midfielder in Europe at the moment,” the man who now works as a FIFA official told beIN Sports, quoted by Metro.
2021 Ballon d’Or Kante Beat Messi-Ronaldo
N’Golo Kante has a good name and it’s natural to be the favorite to win the 2021 Ballon d’Or. Even Kante surpassed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Kante became an important key for Chelsea to win the 2020/2021 Champions League after beating Manchester City 1-0. Kante was everywhere in the game.
He was the one who made the City attack a stalemate and was named the Man of The Match. It was not only in the final match that Kante got that title, but in several previous matches, especially in the group phase. Naturally, if Chelsea have conceded the fewest goals in the Champions League this season, four goals. Kante also proved how important he is to the Chelsea game.
The world’s football public praised Kante as an unsung hero. Therefore, Kante began to be predicted as a candidate for the world’s best player this year because of his success in winning the Champions League trophy and his humble figure.
Quoted by JFDBET, online betting market Betfair puts Kante in the third most seeded position to win this year’s Ballon d’Or. With a coefficient of 5/1, Kante only lost to Kylian Mbappe (9/4) and Robert Lewandowski (9/2).
The French player is even above Lionel Messi (7/1) and Cristiano Ronaldo (10/1). The two superstars have failed to bring their club to win the league this season. While the three players who are candidates are Kevin De Bruyne (10/1), Bruno Fernandes (14/1), and Erling Haaland (20/1).
“He is absolutely extraordinary. I think he can win the Ballon d’Or because he has always been the best player in every important game of Chelsea this season,” said former Tottenham Hotspur player who is now a pundit Jamie O’Hara. “He’s really top,” he continued.
