Aston Villa player says Chelsea star is his country’s 3rd best in PL history
Boubacar Kamara has claimed Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is the third-best French player to grace the Premier League, as he told Viaplay.
The Aston Villa midfielder, who is also a France international like Kante, named Thierry Henry top of the list, along with Manchester United great Eric Cantona.
Signed as an unknown figure by Leicester City in 2015, Kante was not a big buy, nor someone who arrived with a big reputation or expectations on his head.
But within 12 months of wearing the colors at the King Power Stadium, he was a club legend as he helped Claudio Ranieri win a historic, momentous and history-changing Premier League title.
That road took Kante to Stamford Bridge where, once again, he stretched his chest and helped Chelsea regain Premier League glory – before years later producing semi-final man-of-the-match performances. final and in the Champions League final.
Kante has been an incredible servant for Leicester and Chelsea, as Kamara named the midfielder third on his list of all-time French players in English football.
“Nobody knew him before,” Kamara said. “He was very little known when he arrived in the Premier League. What he has done at Leicester and Chelsea is incredible. He was twice champion of England.
KANTE IS A PREMIER LEAGUE GREAT
There is no doubt that when Kante hangs up his boots, he will become one of the finest midfielders to grace English football.
Claude Makelele had that defensive role named after him, and several years later Kante now sees role number six dubbed the “Kante role.”
A player who can cover the pitch like he has rollerblades strapped to his boots, the World Cup winner’s engine is non-stop and one who has provided many great moments.
When it comes to big games, the popular player has arrived, and although injury issues are now on his mind, Chelsea fans will hope he still has plenty left in his locker.
