In an interview after the 2nd Leg of the Champions League quarterfinal fixture between Chelsea and FC Porto, the Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel made some interesting comments. In the interview, he surprisingly spoke about the French international N'Golo Kanté. Kante plays as a central midfielder for the blues and is known widely for his humility and professionalism.
The Chelsea boss said, "Kanté is incredible. He is like one and a half or two players. Everybody who sees him for the first time loves him. All my family loves him when they watch our games now. It is so nice to have him. He wins so many duels and gives everybody confidence. To have NG on the field is a pleasure. He works. He has a work rate that is outstanding, absolutely outstanding. He gives everybody a good feeling and lots of encouragement."
These words came from the horse's mouth. It tells how impressed the Chelsea boss is with the French international.
Although Chelsea suffered a 1-0 defeat in the 2nd leg, they have progressed to the semifinal stage with a 2-1 win on aggregate. Their potential opponent in the semifinals would either be Real Madrid or Liverpool. Liverpool would be hosting Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal fixture today.
