Havertz and Pogba hail Kante

Kai Havertz and Paul Pogba have praised Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante for his performances in Champions League. The France midfielder was instrumental in semifinal against Real Madrid, and continued it in Chelsea’s Champions League final against Manchester City.

Havertz, who is with Germany National team for Euro 2020, admitted having Kante in the team helped immensely in Chelsea’s success this season. Speaking to reporters, the German said “When you see [Kante], you have to smile. He is a great personality and a great person.”

And a great football player. As an attacking player, I’m always happy when he is on the pitch. You can make a lot of mistakes because he always wins the ball back. He’s fast, agile and always gets his leg in.”

That’s why it’s not so nice to have to play against him in the first match of the European Championship, of course.”

The German also praised his compatriot Antonio Rudiger and said “[Rudiger] has given us so much stability over the last few months. After Tuchel’s arrival, he played outstandingly. As a mentality player, he’s also important. On the pitch, he’s a warrior. A bit like Kante – you want him in your team.”

Playing against him in training isn’t as much fun either. The last few months have been top. It was very hard for him at first and now he’s fought his way out of it.”

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba claimed Kante deserves Ballon d’Or for his performances this season. The World Cup winner added “What I would like to say to the whole world is that the “NG” we have seen in recent months has always been the same.”

We talk a lot about his performances but he has always been as good as ever. There was no Cristiano and Messi in the semi-final, so it’s good to see the performances of the midfielders or even the defenders.”

I said a long time ago that it would be appropriate, if Chelsea won, for him to win the Ballon d’Or. It would be deserved, too.”
