Joey Barton claims Chelsea star N’Golo Kante is overrated.
The France midfielder, 25, has been one of Leicester City heroes in their shock title win last season and now he’s become a key-player for the Blues in this fantastic campaign that will probably lead them to some silverware:
But Barton, whose Burnley team held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw last month, stated:
“At the moment, in England, people only swear by N’Golo Kante. It’s the fashion.
“For pundits, he’s the best midfielder in the world. Oh! He’s very good, but I played against him three weeks ago, and that’s not the case.
“He’s a fantastic destroyer in a phenomenal team, but not a creator.”
