N’Golo Kante is “the best player in the world” right now, says former Chelsea defender William Gallas who has showered the star midfielder with glowing praise.
Kante enjoyed a brilliant campaign with the Blues last season, most notably winning the Champions League as he delivered a stunning ‘Man of the Match’ display to beat Manchester City.
The diminutive Frenchman will now look to transfer his club form to the international stage as the defending world champion kick off their European Championship venture against Germany on Tuesday.
And ahead of Les Bleus’ opener, ex-France international Gallas has heaped big praise on Kante.
Speaking to 101 Great Goals, he said: “Everybody loves N’Golo and it is easy to see why
“For me at the moment he is the best player in the world.”
Gallas continued by highlighting Kante’s incredible success in England: “I know people will talk about strikers because fans like to see goals and they appreciate attacking players more.
“But if you look at what N’Golo has done since he arrived in England it is phenomenal.
“He won the league with Leicester, then went to Chelsea and won it there, he has won the Europa League and now the Champions League as well as winning the World Cup with France.
“That is amazing, for me he is the best player in the world.”
The former Leicester City man is poised to start in midfield for Didier Deschamps’ side when they begin their Euro 2020 campaign against Germany.
