Following a successful campaign with Chelsea, N’Golo Kante keeps going from strength to strength with France now advancing into the Euro 2020 championship Round of 16 as Group winner.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has thus joined the chorus to praise the Frenchman’s superb qualities as he names the aspects of Kante’s game that make him so valuable.
“I’d go as far as to say he’s the most valuable player in this tournament, if not in Europe completely,” Ferdinand told the BBC.
“I think a big part of his game is he surprises you.”
“I know we all know him, but there’s elements of his game where he comes out of nowhere because he’s so quick, he anticipates things so well. He’s the MVP.”
Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante’s name has been repeatedly mentioned in the running for Ballon d’Or and if France can go on to win the tournament, he will surely be the main contender for the crown.
