France international N’Golo Kante has broken silence on his new role under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
Kante insists he is enjoying his new role; the former Leicester City star is rated as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and has played huge roles in two Premier League title triumphs and a World Cup victory.
Sarri had demanded that the France international play a more attacking role.
Speaking after his side’s 2-0 victory over Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday, Kante insisted that he is enjoying his new role under Sarri.
Kante told Chelsea’s official website: “I like this position.
“The manager has given me the confidence to play this position since the beginning of the season.
“I am trying to do my best and I will get better at it, and I hope to have success in it this year.”
Kante added: “It was the order from the manager to press them. “I saw there was an opportunity to press, I took the ball and passed to Pedro who used great skill and hit a good shot.”
“The feeling is that it was not an easy match,” Kante said, adding “Fulham are returning to form and it was sometimes complicated, but scoring quickly was important.
“They had a couple of chances, but we were able to score again and make the end of the match easier. We deserved to win.”
Kante will hope to lead Chelsea to victory when they tackle Wolves in the Premier League fixture on Wednesday.
