Jones feels the Frenchman still had plenty to offer the Stamford Bridge dressing room.
Journalist Dean Jones says that N’Golo Kante would be Chelsea’s captain if he had not left for the Saudi club. It means, he somehow highlighted the impact he could have had on the team.
Chelsea are struggling to adjust in the new season as their poor run of form continues in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Kante has made a strong start to his time at Al-Ittihad.
Jones feels the Frenchman still had plenty to offer the Stamford Bridge dressing room. Jones said it was a major blow for the Blues. The journalist told GIVEMESPORT that he feels had Kante stayed, he would be wearing the Chelsea armband right now:
“I see the levels that Kante is playing at the moment for Al-Ittihad Club and if he was playing like that for Chelsea, he would be captain, he’d be the best player in their midfield and this team would be in a much different situation. “Also, someone like Moises Caicedo would have learned a lot from having somebody like Kante in the team. Because at the moment, the players around Caicedo are underperforming because they’re also finding their feet in this team, I think he’s struggling to establish himself and assert himself in the manner that he’d exactly like to.”
