Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to hail N’Golo Kante for his impact in Chelsea’s 3-0 win vs Tottenham on Sunday. He recently revealed that the Frenchman is clearly unique and one of a kind on the football pitch.
According to him, any team that has N’Golo Kante has something everyone is looking for because he is simply fantastic in the middle of the park.
He added that he wasn’t happy with the first 45 minutes vs Spurs despite a few individual performances that caught the eye.
His words, “He played a huge part. N’Golo is N’Golo, he’s unique, one of a kind and having him on the pitch makes such a huge difference to everything.”
“He’s a top player. If you have N’Golo, you have something everyone is looking for.”
“He is a unqiue guy… He is fantastic.”
“I was absolutely not happy with the first 45 minutes,”
“There were individual performances which were great in the first half from Kepa and Thiago Silva. Even more players were good but in general we lacked intent, energy and relentless in duels and 50-50 balls.”
“I had the feeling we wanted to impress by pure skills but in derbies like this it is not always about just skills. It is about aggression, winning duels and performing better as a team.”
“We spoke clearly about it at half time. In the second half it was a very good performance and a deserved win in the second half. It was a very good reaction so I am happy with the performance in the second half.”
Thiago Silva added, “It was nice that he almost scored twice. He was so strong. I am very happy for him that he was able to open the game for us,”
“His performance even in the first half was outstanding. It was a fantastic performance and well deserved.”
