Is kante new role the primary cause of his not expectional relationship with the Italian boss?

The former Leicester city Frenchman is reportedly unhappy with his new position at Chelsea.

According to the recent report by the French newspaper Le10 Sport, the 27-year old Midfielder N’Golo Kante’s relationship with Maurizio Sarri are far from being good. As the source state, they are actually ‘not exceptional’ as the midfielder allegedly does not enjoy his new role at the club under the Italian. 

Moreover, the news has given PSG enough encouragement to try to land the Frenchman in the summer as they reportedly consider Kante one of the main targets for the next transfer window. However, this might be a difficult task for the Ligue 1 side as the midfielder signed a new five year contract with The Blues on 23 November 2018.

On 16 July 2016, Kanté signed for Chelsea from Leicester city  for a reported fee of £32 million. After signing a five-year contract with the club, Kanté said:

I am so happy to have signed for one of the biggest clubs in Europe. It’s a dream come true for me.

Commenting on his new role under Maurizio Sarri, the Frenchman said in December: “I like this position. The manager has given me the confidence to play this position since the beginning of the season. I am trying to do my best and I will get better at it, and I hope to have success in it this year.”

However, our former player and manager Ruud Gullit believes it’s Maurizio Sarri’s biggest mistake to not use the Frenchman as a defensive midfielder :

“Personally, I think Sarri’s biggest mistake was to buy Jorginho when he already had N’Golo Kante. They are a little bit different as players but both of them are holding midfielders. Kante is a World Cup winner and Jorginho is a player Sarri knows he can trust. He finds it difficult to choose between them, so he plays both.”

Author’s Take

Kante is a very quiet and humble guy, irrespective of the position he always give his best. If he didn’t like the new role he won’t have signed the new five year contract with Chelsea. He also mentioned about his liking for the new role in November.
