N'Golo Kante is not worth the hype, according to Burnley midfielder Joey Barton.

Chelsea star Kante slammed by Leboeuf: He is timid and not a leader

BeSoccer by BeSoccer  @besoccer_com - Friday, 24 March 2017 

http://www.besoccer.com/new/chelsea-star-kante-slammed-by-leboeuf-he-is-timid-and-not-a-leader

 

Frank Leboeuf feels N'Golo Kante has many qualities, but not those that are required to become a leader for club and country.

Chelsea star N'Golo Kante has been criticised by Frank Leboeuf, who feels the midfielder is "timid" and lacks leadership skills.

Kante has only started one of France's World Cup qualifiers in this campaign despite his stunning form for Chelsea, which has led to him becoming the hot favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year.

The 25-year-old is closing in on winning back-to-back Premier League titles having helped Leicester City to glory last season.

But while Leboeuf acknowledges Kante is already good enough to be a crucial part of the team for Chelsea or France, he feels the midfielder is lacking in some key areas.

"The lad is vital to Chelsea, but he is not a boss as he is not a good talker," Leboeuf said to RMC. 

"He is timid and lacks the necessary scope. He is an incredible soldier, and a warrior, but he has neither the personality nor the calibre of a leader.

 

"He is shy and lacks stature. Is he a 'boss' at heart? I don't think so. At Chelsea, in the middle of the stars, he is Mr Essential and Conte counts on him, but he never makes him the boss. 

"He doesn't have the game of a boss - he is not a Zinedine Zidane figure."

Kante is with the France squad ahead of their World Cup qualifying match away to Luxembourg on Saturday and high-profile home friendly against Spain next Tuesday.

Leboeuf, who played for Chelsea and Les Bleus in his playing days, added: "He is not even a leader when it comes to technique. He is a lad who will win you the ball back 800,000 times every game.

"You can sum him up in one sentence. He is the engine, but not the driver.

"He can be the engine of the France team without being their boss. He doesn't yet possess the calibre required."

Leboeuf thinks Kante's kind nature could ultimately count against him in the battle for a France starting spot.

"He would not be a problem if left on the bench, but maybe if you leave Paul Pogba on the bench there will be problems," said Leboeuf.

"But it is down to Didier Deschamps, the national coach. He can do what he wants and is the only one who decides."

We need a Kante song, like the Willian one now :cig:

After the R5 programme the commentators/pundits were saying how hard it would be for us to hang on to him.

This really shouldn't be an issue. With the wealth of the club, no player should be prised away if we want to keep them, and that includes Hazard.

The only thing that I've ever questioned about him is just why he left Leicester after a year, making the CL and winning the PL?

It sounds either very cold, maybe thinking of them as a stepping stone. Or he just couldn't see any future there. But as he goes back to watch them it wasn't a nasty break up.

It makes me think its possible for him to do it again and it worries me some.

But there is a song we try to do.

Its the usual elephant in the room -agents.

They've weighed in today as well ....

''Chelsea star N'Golo Kante is 'extremely unhappy' at the club, according to his agent.

'Kante isn't receiving the respect that he deserves', his agent said. 'He could play for any of the top clubs in Europe.''

Parasites that get 10% every move

Can't we get a kitty going to keep someone on call to put a hit on these sods? All they do is cause grief and destruction. Shouldn't cost much.
