N’Golo Kante has revealed his best midfield role after Chelsea’s defeat to Liverpool in the Super Cup.
According to The Mirror, the Frenchman said he prefers to play in a more advanced midfield role.
Interestingly, during Maurizio Sarri’s reign at Stamford Bridge, Kante was pushed into a more advanced, box-to-box role, leaving Jorginho to play from the base of Chelsea’s midfield.
After Lampard’s arrival, Chelsea fans were looking forward to see Kante return to his favoured defensive midfield role, but the French insists he’s excited playing from a more attacking position.
“I like to play in this position, this is where I played last year,” Kante told Goal.
“The coach asked me to play in this position, I like to do it.
