The 30-year-old Frenchman has enjoyed a stellar 2020/21 campaign. Be it under Frank Lampard or his successor Thomas Tuchel, Kante has been a key member of the Chelsea side. He has put in some stellar displays, especially, towards the end of the season, playing an integral role in the Blues’ success.

Now playing a similar role for France in the Euros, his former manager at Chelsea, Frank Lampard, spoke about an unusual problem he had with Kante.

‘The problem I found with him more than anything was trying to hold him back in training because every day you train and you let him off the leash in an opposed session he does that, and you have to try to pull him back because he can just put that output into anything he does. He’s incredible, he’s exactly what you see from the outside.’
These sort of ‘problems’ are welcome for any manager. The ever-smiling Kante is a workhorse of a player and puts it all out there and in training as Lampard said. Hence, the amount of success he has gotten over the years is not a surprise at all.
