Former Chelsea assistant manager Ray Wilkins says he’s never seen a player have so much impact as N’Golo Kante at Chelsea and tipped the Frenchman to become a better player than Claude Makelele.
The 25-year-old joined the Blues from Leicester City in a £30million deal last summer after winning the Premier League with the Foxes.
The midfielder’s been instrumental in Chelsea’s 13-match winning run, where Antonio Conte’s side have conceded just four times.
Kante’s frame and playing style has often seen him compared to former Chelsea ace Makelele but Wilkins believes Kante will better the former Real Madrid ace.

‘I never thought I would see one player have such a massive effect on two teams in a couple of seasons as N’Golo Kante,’ Wilkins told Goals on Sunday.
‘I said at the end of last season they’d [Leicester City] be better off selling Mahrez or Vardy and keeping Kante. He was so instruemental in their [title] victory.
‘He’s gone to Chelsea and he’s been absolutely outstanding. For me, in a couple of year he’ll be a better Claude Makelele and that’s a bit of a statement.
‘Claude was a basically a defensive midfielder that broke things up, he was a bit of Rottweiler.
‘This guy is a bit of a Rottweiler but he has also has the ability to pass and score. And his energy, his energy is phenomenal.’
