Claude Makelele Reveals The One Skill N'Golo Kante Is Missing
N'Golo Kante is on course to win an impressive back-to-back Premier League titles with two different clubs following his exploits for Leicester City last season.
After consistently churning out incredible performances in the engine room of the pitch for the Foxes, a host of clubs were eager to snap him up.
But it was Antonio Conte's Chelsea who won the race to his signature, and he's continued to perform heroics in the middle of the park.
His outings have helped his new side to the summit of the league, 10 points clear off their nearest rivals, Spurs.
Needless to say, the diminutive Frenchman is being tipped, by many, to ultimately be crowned he PFA Player of the year.
And as he garners praise, fans and pundits alike have been drawing comparison to his predecessor, Claude Makelele.
But in order to become an exceptional player, and a regular for France, the 25-year-old needs to improve in one area, well, according to Makelele;
"What I like about him is that he's very generous." Makelele said to ex-Chelsea defender William Gallas in an interview SFR Sport.
Naming leadership as the key quality he's missing; "He plays with a smile on his face, and that's an exceptional quality. I really hope he has a better career than mine, but he still needs that leadership."
"That doesn't mean be a captain, but to have an aura within the team that when they look at him, they think 'We're going to win' or when he speaks to them, they go 'You're right.'
"When he has that aura, he'll be an exceptional player. That's when he'll become a regular for France."
To be honest, if there's one person in football to highlight his flaws it's Makelele.
