Antonio Conte reveals where N’Golo Kante must improve at Chelsea
Antonio Conte says N'Golo Kante must improve his final ball at Chelsea despite his fine form
Antonio Conte has admitted that he has been delighted with N’Golo Kante’s fine form for Chelsea this season – but wants him to improve his final ball.
Kante has earned plenty of praise for his fine performances for Chelsea this season following his arrival at the club from Leicester City last summer.
The France international helped Leicester win the title last season and has continued his fine form this term, to help Conte’s men top the Premier League table.
Kante has been rewarded for his brilliant displays with a nomination for the PFA player of the year award.
However, Conte says there is still room for improvement from the Frenchman.
Speaking at his news conference ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Manchester United, Conte said: “N’Golo is improving a lot, not only to win the ball, to recover the ball, but also we are working to improve the last pass.”
Chelsea are now preparing for their FA Cup semi-final showdown against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday evening as they chase a domestic double in Conte’s first season at the club.
