Chelsea news: Maurizio Sarri delivers stunning rebuke of N’Golo Kante after Tottenham loss

“Kante in the last match wanted to solve the match after the first 15 minutes. He lost the position, he attacked too much the other box.

“And I think this is not one of the best characteristics of Kante. It was only a reaction to the difficulties.”

Asked if Kante needed time to adapt to his different role, Sarri added: “Maybe it is a question of time.

“He needs to stay near to Jorginho, especially when the ball is on the other side.”
