Lampard rates Kante as 'one of the best' players in the world

LONDON: Chelsea manager Frank Lampard praise filled in N'Golo Kante saying that he is one of the best players in the world.

However, Kante failed to impress this season as he suffered injuries to his ankle and muscles that restricted him to 22 appearances so far.

"We obviously need N'Golo Kante in our team, one of the best players in the world. I knew that before becoming manager of Chelsea , I know that from working with him. We, unfortunately, haven't been able to have him much this year, but going forward we want him fit and ready to go," the club's official website quoted Lampard as saying.

The football season has been halted indefinitely by the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition, the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) ended the 2019-2020 football season on Thursday, with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) being declared champion of Ligue 1.

Lampard further stated that Kante has been a great young lady for the team this season.

This season he has played around 40 percent of our games. Even then it has been difficult for him. I've really felt it on an individual level, he said.

It has been a great fault for us. Looking forward, and every time it restarts, we want to put it in its best shape, added Lampard.
