N’Golo Kante has come in for special praise following his performance in Chelsea’s Champions League final win over Manchester City.The Frenchman was universally regarded as the man-of-the-match in Portugal,
making several important interceptions to snuff out any danger to ensure the Blues lifted the trophy for the second time in their history.
For Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel, Kante is his ‘dream’ player who is key to the side’s chances of winning more major trophies in the future.
What would be ideal for the Blues is if there were two Kantes to call upon during a long hard season so that one could play whilst the other takes a rest from time to time.
With that said, Tuchel may already have the next Kante in his Chelsea squad.
Kai Havertz, who scored the winner in the Champions League final, has compared Antonio Rudiger to Kante by stating the German is a “warrior” that every team needs.
