Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge at the end of January, Kante has taken his game to the next level. The German manager has always been a big fan of Kante’s skills and tried to recruit him at PSG. Together at Chelsea, they’ve worked a lot on the Frenchman’s positioning, his ball retention and his ball progression; Tuchel also gave him the confidence and the freedom to allow him to roam and play like he did against Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City and other elite opponents.
A lot of people thinks that Kante could and should win the Ballon d’Or at the end of the year. The feeling within the French football world is that if Les Bleus have a really good Euros, the former Caen and Leicester man will be right at the top of the list.
Jorginho enters the race for the ballon’dOR! He has been outstanding for Italy as well as Chelsea. Many experts are saying that if Italy manage to win the Euro 2020 the Italian midfielder has a very good chance of winning. Many fans are calling him the Luka Modric of 2021.
