France boss insists Kante can play in new Chelsea role

France boss Didier Deschamps insists N’Golo Kante can excel in his new role at Chelsea.

Kante, so effective as a defensive midfielder, has been deployed in a more attacking position under Blues boss Maurizio Sarri this season.

There has been some debate over whether Kante is suited to playing in the role, but Deschamps has no doubt the player can adapt.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of France’s internationals, Deschamps declared that Kante “is always having fun” regardless of his role in the team.
