N’golo Kante has insisted his decision to join Chelsea and miss out on UCL football was not a gamble.
Following an underwhelming campaign, Chelsea failed to qualify for the UCL, while Leicester City qualified, after surprisingly winning the EPL.
However, Kante is sure Chelsea will be in Europe next season. And is counting on Antonio Conte to take Chelsea there.
“It’s not a gamble. For me this is a new step. To stay at Leicester and play in the Champions League would have been a good step, but joining Chelsea is a good step too,” the 25-year-old was quoted as saying by Daily Mirror.
“Of course, I have never played in the Champions League. But everyone knows that Chelsea are a big club and I hope I will be playing in it next year.
“Playing in the Champions League is a big dream of mine. When you are a player and have a chance to play in it, it’s a good thing.
“But like I said, I hope to play in it next season.”
