Gallas continued by highlighting Kante's incredible success in England: "I know people will talk about strikers because fans like to see goals and they appreciate attacking players more.

"But if you look at what N'Golo has done since he arrived in England it is phenomenal.

"He won the league with Leicester, then went to Chelsea and won it there, he has won the Europa League and now the Champions League as well as winning the World Cup with France.
