Thomas Tuchel in a post-match interview has hailed Ngolo Kante following his team’s victory over defending champions Liverpool at Anfield.
Chelsea secured a one-goal win over the Merseyside-based club after a Mason Mount struck a stunner which ultimately settled the tie and inflicted Liverpool a fifth straight defeat at home.
Throughout the game, Ngolo Kante put out a stellar performance as he showed why he’s world-class when it comes to midfield defensive work.
The Chelsea midfield enforcer over the years since his debut in the Premier League with Leicester has proven beyond a reasonable doubt he’s one of the world’s best defensive midfielders as he grows from strength to strength.
Since his (Tuchel’s) arrival at the club, Ngolo Kante has featured in almost every game Chelsea has played and in all, he maintained a fine form.
Speaking to RMC Sport after the game, Tucel said “He [Kante] is a gift. It’s incredible.”
“I’ve never seen anything like this. At training, in games, he never stops. ‘We look at the data on his intensity and he is incredible. He really is a gift.”
