No doubt, Chelsea and France midfielder is widely respected as one of the world’s best defensive midfielders for a long time.
Moussa Sissoko is the latest to pay tribute, speaking to Watford’s official YouTube channel.
“I will say Kante,” Sissoko responded when asked his toughest Premier League opponent.
“What he’s doing on the pitch, he’s a joke. For me, he’ll be one of the best midfielders in history.
“You sometimes think you’ve passed him, but you see him passing through you, and he’s quick.”
Kante should be ready to face his former team in Leicester, with whom he won the league, on Saturday.
If the Frenchman is at his best, it will improve Chelsea‘s chances greatly as they aim to keep increasing their lead at the top of the Premier League.
