Eden Hazard has compared Chelsea teammate N’golo Kante to a rat, as he praises his performance.
The France international helped Leicester win the EPL trophy last season, before joining Chelsea in the summer.
And Hazard has since lauded the midfielder’s impact at the club, although through a quite unusual comparison.
“He [Kante] gives us confidence,” Hazard told Chelsea TV.
“We want to try to dribble and to pass the opponent because we know even if we try but don’t pass the opponent and if we lose the ball then he is there behind us, he can take the ball.
“He is a fantastic player. He is a like a rat, he goes everywhere and he has a top mentality and is a top guy.
“It is always good to play with the top players.”
