N’Golo Kante names Chelsea player with ‘good mentality’ and who is ‘ready to step up’

N’Golo Kante has been a top performer for Chelsea over the years since arriving from Leicester City and he’s been a pinnacle part of this squad.

So much so that he has now been taking the odd captain duties for the team and is one of the more experienced heads in the group.

This is only a good thing for some of the younger players such as Billy Gilmour, who will be learning a lot from the likes of Kante.

The France World Cup winner has been offering some sound advice to Gilmour in recent years since he has been training with the first team squad.

“We have trained together a long time now and we speak,” Kante told the Chelsea website.

“I know what he likes, he knows what I like. I share sometimes my experience of what has happened in my national team or in previous teams.”

Gilmour has yet to break into the first team regularly under Thomas Tuchel, but Kante believes he has the potential to do so.

He pinpoints his mentality as well as his quality as two major aspects that make him stand out.

“He is a good player with a good mentality,” Kante continued.

“He is always ready to step up and do well, even when we call on him in training. He has good potential for now and the future, and I’m sure he will do well for Chelsea and in his career.”
