Kante Ready To Excel In New Chelsea Role

Kante Ready To Excel In New Chelsea Role

N’Golo Kante is confident he can adapt to a more attacking role in Chelsea’s transformed playing style under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

Kante volleyed in the opener to help Sarri commence his debut Premier League season with a 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

It was only the 27-year-old’s third goal in England’s top flight as he adjusted seamlessly from defensive-minded anchor to influential box-to-box contributor.

“Now the system is ­something ­different, especially the way we play now,” Kante told the Mirror.

“So, even during the ­holidays, we were thinking and talking about how to adapt. It will require a lot of sacrifice from us all, so that is why I have to continue ­moving forward as a player.

“I have worked with ­different managers in the past and different systems.

“The best way to always keep your position [in the team] is to ­remain focused and have the same attitude towards ­everyone. So that is what I am going to try to do again this season.”
