Arsène Wenger effusive with his praise for N’Golo Kanté

Speaking on the BeIN Sports Euro Show tonight, Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger was effusive with his praise for Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kanté.

He had the following to say:

“I admire and like N’Golo Kanté a lot. It gives you ideas… He gives you the feeling that the higher the level he plays at, the more at ease he is. We are talking about numbers. He has the most interceptions in Europe & by far. He has incredible quality. He feels the game, only very few people can do that. He’s always where he needs to be. It is very rare to have that in the central midfielder. Not always orthodox, but always in the right place.”
