Sol Campbell sends message to Chelsea fans about N’Golo Kante
Sol Campbell explains just why he is such a keen admirer of Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante
Sol Campbell has told Chelsea fans that the Blues have one of the best midfielders in the Premier League in the form of N’Golo Kante and says he was a worthy winner of the PFA player of the year award.
Kante has been in superb form for Chelsea this season since signing for the west London side from Leicester City last summer.
The 26-year-old has been rewarded for his fine displays by being voted as the PFA player of the year following his brilliant start to life at Stamford Bridge.
Kante, who helped Leicester win the Premier League last season, has been ever-present in the Chelsea side this season.
And former Arsenal star Campbell is a huge admirer of the France international.
Speaking in an interview with BetStars, Campbell said: “Kante would have been my pick for PFA player of the year. He’s a wonderful player.
“It’s all about what he did last season and what he is doing now, the quality he has shown. He’s made a difference wherever he’s been and that’s key.
“The players have recognised that and not gone for the typical kind of player, like Eden Hazard, who’s scored all of the goals.
“I think the players have gone for Kante because he is on the cusp of winning the Premier League twice, with two different teams. So I think that’s excellent.”
Kante will be expecting to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
