CAIRO – 11 September 2017: Antonio Conte, Chelsea`s manager, praised his French player N`Golo Kante after his performance against Leicester City in the English Premier League.
The midfielder, 26, played a key role in a third successive victory which gives Chelsea real momentum after a bad start to the season.
Conte stated: "Before a lot of people told me ‘yes, without the ball he has good stamina and is a good worker’. But now with the ball he has improved a lot.
He continued: “I don’t know if he is world class or not. But N’Golo is a really good player. To be be the best player in the Premier League last season is a great thing. And this season he is confirming it.”
N`Golo will feature with his team against Qarabag FK in the first clash in the group stages of the Champions League.
