Nemanja Matic Says Kante Better Than Chelsea Legend! Agree?
Nemanja Matic believes that N’Golo Kante is even better than Claude Makelele in the role of Chelsea’s midfield destroyer, and admits that a conversation with incoming head coach Antonio Conte convinced him to stay at Stamford Bridge this summer.
Signed from Premier League champions Leicester City in a £30 million deal in July, Kante has immediately established himself as a key figure at the base of Conte’s midfield behind Matic and Brazilian playmaker Oscar, earning special praise for his dominating display in a 3-0 win over Burnley last month.
