Didier Drogba has heaped praise on N’Golo Kante for the impact he has made since his transfer to Chelsea last summer.

Kante has earned plenty of praise for his impressive performances for the Blues this season as he helped Antonio Conte’s men build a seven-point lead at the top of the table.

The midfielder has been in such good form that he has been placed as among the favourites to win the PFA player of the year award this season.

Drogba has been keeping a close eye on Kante and the way he has been developing at Chelsea and the former Blues striker has been hugely impressed by what he has seen from the midfielder this term.

Drogba is quoted as saying by Metro: “It’s amazing to see him play.

“He reminds me of [former Chelsea midfielder Claude] Makelele.

“You look at him and it’s like he hasn’t run at all during the game because he’s never tired.

“When he makes fouls, he smiles at you and you can’t even give him a yellow card. He’s really smart.”
