- N'Golo Kante will not be allowed to play his natural position against Malmo in Europa
- Maurizio Sarri confirmed this claiming that the Frenchman cannot move fast with the ball
- Kante has been impressive for Chelsea this season in all competitions
Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that N'Golo Kante will be left out of his natural position in the Blues' squad against Malmoe FF in Thursday's night Europa League encounter at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri claimed that the France international cannot move the ball fast enough in the midfield the way he would have loved the movement to be.
The former Napoli coach is currently under serious pressure at Chelsea following embarrassing defeats against Manchester City and Manchester United.
He is now trying all he could to save his job at Stamford Bridge as there are reports that he could be fired before the end of the season.
"As you know very well, it's not very easy because we have no time," said the Italian. But we are trying to solve our problems. It's not easy.
"On the pitch, we have no time at the moment. But we are trying to talk with the players. We are trying to avoid some mistakes by video.
"But it's not easy because we have to play every three days. On the pitch, we have no time. I have to think we are able to improve, and able to improve immediately,'' Sarri explained in a press conference.
Jorginho has taken the natural position of N'Golo Kante at Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri gave an explanation to the development.
''In that position, I want a player able to move the ball very fast. This is not the best characteristic of N'Golo.
"N'Golo is very useful for us, but this one is not his best characteristic,'' Sarri explained.

Maurizio Sarri has been under serious fire recently at Stamford Bridge following poor results as Chelsea are also currently out of the top four teams in the Premier League.
