Antonio Conte opens up about N’Golo Kante at Chelsea this season

Antonio Conte heaps praise on N'Golo Kante for the impact he has had at Chelsea so far this season

Antonio Conte has heaped praise on N’Golo Kante for the impact he has had since his arrival at Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The French midfielder has slotted seamlessly into the Chelsea side since his transfer to Stamford Bridge from Leicester City last summer.

Kante has been one of the first names on the Chelsea team-sheet this term and has had no problems adapting to life at Stamford Bridge following his summer move.

And Conte has revealed his delight at the ease at which Kante has gotten used to life at Chelsea following his transfer last summer.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website before Saturday’s clash with Leicester City, Conte said: “It can happen that when you change and you go from one team to another, with totally different expectations and different pressures, you can suffer and then you don’t have good performances at the start of the season.

“N’Golo went into the team very well. I remember when he arrived in pre-season. It was later than the other players because he finished his holidays after them, but he’s started his path at Chelsea very well.”

Chelsea are currently flying high at the top of the Premier League table as both Conte and Kante look to win the title in their first season with the club.
