- The Frenchman has been overly impressive since his move to the EPL.
Andres Iniesta has named Chelsea’s midfield workhorse N’Golo Kante as one player he would have loved to play with for years.

The player has been forced to work on his attacking instincts under Maurizio Sarri in order to be accommodated in the Sarriball ideology and he hasn’t failed thus far although some limitations have been apparent.
Regardless, Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta has opined that Kante’s consistency at both club and national level makes him a very brilliant player he would have loved to play with.
