Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel admired N’Golo Kante.
After Kante played a key role in Chelsea’s Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid, Tuchel described him as “a huge gift.”
He praised the France international for his modesty, strength, and ability to support his teammates.
Tuchel hailed Kante’s contribution, telling reporters: “I never know the age of my players, I just judge from the performance. You play with N’Golo Kante and you always have more.
“His intensity and volume are outstanding. It is a pleasure to be a coach. He is a big gift for me, so humble, such a big helper on the pitch.
“He and Mateo Kovacic needed to step up today, we rely on them, and they took the weight on their shoulders and did a fantastic job.”
