Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern were delighted when a deal to bring N’Golo Kante to the club was confirmed several weeks ago; and now he has revealed why he chose to make the move to SW6…
N’Golo Kante was one of the most sought after Premier League stars this summer after a stunning season in the heart of the Leicester City midfield, which saw the lowly club dominant the Premier League right through to the end of the season.
Linked with a host of clubs over the summer months, Kante somewhat surprisingly chose to join Chelsea, despite the side’s disappointing 10th place finish in the Premier League last season.
In an interview with the club’s official website, he has revealed exactly why he made the move to South West London…
Kante places an emphasis on the importance of Antonio Conte in his decision making process, describing the Italian as “passionate” and a “hard worker”.
He places an importance of being valued as a player, and discusses how Antonio Conte “said he knows how I play and he thinks I can be a good player for his team”.
Our landlord made a pretty good point on this; if Antonio Conte is such a draw maybe not being in the Champion’s League might not hurt Chelsea’s chances as they look to improve their squad over the next few weeks…
In a message to the Chelsea fans, Kante simply said that “To the supporters, the only thing I would like to say now is that I will always give my best for the club, for the team” – a statement that immediately drew a reaction from the Chelsea faithful here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Chelsea fans – we want to hear from you! Let’s talk about everything from Antonio Conte, signing new players, and of course the role that N’Golo Kante might have over the next year.
