Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has revealed the key to midfielder N’Golo Kante’s success at the club.
Kante has been a key part of Chelsea’s squad since joining the west London club from Leicester City in 2016.
The France international has been a stalwart in Chelsea’s midfield under every manager he has played for at Stamford Bridge.
Kante has won the 2016-17 Premier League title, 2018-19 Europa League, the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League and the 2019-20 UEFA Super Cup with Chelsea.
He also finished in fifth position in the 2021 Ballon d’ Or ranking.
Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Tuchel said that the key to Kante’s success at Chelsea is that the 30-year-old can sleep for hours and take his rest.
“When I say he switches on, on the pitch, he’s really the guy to switch off, off the pitch. He can be so calm, be almost shy, play his rounds of chess, he can sleep for hours and hours and hours, and take his rest.
“So he plays hard, but he rests really hard, and this is maybe the key to his success.
“He is totally humble and totally calm and a nice guy to have. Once he’s in top shape, not injured and mentally in the space where he trusts himself physically, then he has such a huge impact.”
