'Kante's biggest Chelsea player but we're better without him': Blues' fans propose bold change
This sounds almost like blasphemy yet at least two Blues on Tribuna.com say it's true.
Our user shofu adetayo osh reasons: "We’ve won so many matches without Kante and lost so many matches with him. Our match against Burnley without Kante was one of our best performances this season and most of these good performances happen without Kante on the pitch.
"Kante is the biggest player in the Chelsea team, I know that for sure, but without him, Chelsea is doing much better. Chelsea style of play doesn’t need Kante, period!"
Another fan, Oluwagbemileke Olayinka Charles adds: "Kante is a defensive midfielder. Asking him to play up front or as a box-to-box midfielder is not helping him at all. Of course, he delivers some attacking play because he is simply a hardworking player, not because he is evidently natural in this position. Our winning streak happened when he was injured.
"I hate to say this but Chelsea is a better side when N'Golo is not playing as an attacking midfielder. He should be a direct sub to Jorginho or vice versa.
"I hope the rest of Chelsea fans get my point. Just tired of seeing him run aimlessly. Let him either sit in front of the defenders or let him come in as a sub when we need to tighten things up after a lead."
❔ However strange it sounds, how can Kante make Chelsea better?
