He is bigger than Drogba; Tuchel admits this Chelsea star is bigger than Didier Drogba

He is bigger than Drogba; Tuchel admits this Chelsea star is bigger than Didier Drogba.

Didier Drogba is considered by many as a living Chelsea legend and in truth he is, putting together everything he has done for Chelsea and his selfless efforts towards the team and all the accomplishments, it is easier to assume one cannot rate him that high.

But then, Tuchel thinks otherwise.

Speaking in a pre match interview before the last match of the season for Chelsea, Tuchel was asked if he thinks Kante can be compared to Drogba, and Tuchel gave a reply most Chelsea fans will not like.

Here is what Tuchel said;

“For sure, but because he is not that obvious, he is not in the spotlight, he is even more important for a team because a guy like N’Golo with the mentality of a helper, a water carrier, this makes the difference and big teams and successful teams need this.”

“That’s why we love him so much, and everybody wants to play with him and why we miss him so much when he is not there.”

I think he is our key, key, key player; but key, key, key players need to be on the pitch.”

Now I know you will be a little spooked about why this is happening and most likely why Tuchel has such a high praise for Kante but well here is why.

Initially Tuchel had said that Chelsea finishing third place in the EPL this season despite Kante not playing for al their matches is still considered a miracle and maybe this is why he believes that the French man is so important to the success of the team.
