Fate Pushed Kante To Premiership Instead Of Ligue 1

Fate Pushed Kante To Premiership Instead Of Ligue 1

France midfielder N’Golo Kante who is on course to be a back-to-back winner of Premiership League medal could have had his destiny truncated had he followed his initial plans of joining French Ligue 1 side, Marseille.

A switch of fate saw him moving to the Premiership where he was a member of the surprised 2015/16 winners, Leicester City. From Leicester he joined Chelsea this season and may again have a league championship medal this season. Kante, 25, told Canal +: “Among the clubs that most wanted to recruit me were Marseille and Leicester.
“I thought I had to go through a stage in France. I remember the generation of (Mamadou) Niang, (Franck) Ribery and (Samir) Nasri and it was a team that I liked, especially in the Champions League.”
A 14-time France international, Kante’s rise appears set to continue with the PFA Players’ Player of the Year Award.
But the humble Kante said he had several team-mates who were worthy of the prize.
“There are quite a few players in the Premier League who deserve this award,” he said.
“There is (Eden) Hazard, Diego Costa and David Luiz in my team.”
Chelsea are 10 points clear atop the Premier League, their next outing a clash against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
