πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Tuchel explains N'Golo Kante as an extra 'man more' and gift

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel gave his latest praise of N’Golo Kante after a five-star performance to defeat Atletico Madrid 2-0 on Wednesday night.

The Frenchman gave the Spanish side a torrid night with 13 ball recoveries at Stamford Bridge to help Chelsea march into the UEFA Champions League quarter-final 3-0 on aggregate.

"If you play with N'Golo [Kante] you always play with a minimum half a man more; this is unique," Tuchel said after the game, as quoted by Goal.

"It is a pleasure to be his coach, he is a big gift for me, a guy so, so humble, and who is such a big helper on the pitch.

"But don't underestimate his quality in passing, dribbling and escaping the pressure. Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo needed to step up because we missed Jorginho. They knew we would rely on them, and they delivered," he concluded.

Up next for Kante and the Blues is the visit of the grossly struggling and coachless Sheffield United on Sunday in the Premier League.
