Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has heaped praise on “unbelievable” N’Golo Kante after his gleaming performances for Chelsea lately.
Berbatov said he loves the France World Cup winner because he is so good, adding that he is someone who is working his ass off and covering everyone on the pitch.
Kante has been in top form for Chelsea since having been used as a regular starter by manager Thomas Tuchel.
Speaking to Betfair, Berbatov said: “I love N’Golo Kante.
“He was everywhere [against Madrid]. I don’t know how to describe this player. He is so good.
“They should have an award in football for players like this. He is someone who is working his ass off and covering everyone on the pitch.
“He doesn’t want people to say thank you, he just does it and knows how to do it. He will put his body on the line for you.
“That guy is unbelievable. He deserves credit because the way he plays football is great.”
Kante will hope to feature for Chelsea when they host Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge.
