N'Golo Kante

Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney, has named Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante, as the best midfielder in the world.

Rooney said this ahead of Kante’s participation in this summer’s Euro 2020, which Will kicks off on June 11.

The former England striker believes Kante has the characteristics of both former Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, and former Chelsea star, Claude Makelele.

Kante played a key role for Chelsea in their Champions League victory over Manchester City last month as Thomas Tuchel and his men secured the title a second time in the club’s history.
