Pedro has piled the praise onto Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kante following the Blues’ 2-1 victory over Leicester City, report the Metro.
Kante was instrumental in the Foxes’ against-the-odds title triumph in the 2015/16 campaign, but there was no sentimentality yesterday afternoon. The Frenchman was phenomenal and has his first goal of the season to show for it.
Kante’s brilliance is not news, yet it still appears to be a hot topic. The Metro quote Pedro, who knows Kante’s strengths better than most having trained and played alongside him for over a year, who says:
Who would argue with Pedro? Kante is in many ways the perfect midfielder. When he signed for Chelsea in the summer of 2016, the BBC reported that we parted with ‘just’ £30M. In the current, inflated transfer market, that looks to be an absolute steal.
Kante is often compared to Claude Makelele, but he is building a legacy of his own. And not to mention he’s only 26-years-old!
