- Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has described N'Golo Kante as the current best central midfielder in the world
- This comes after his impressive performance against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final duel
- Kante scored the only goal that gave Chelsea the victory at Stamford bridge
Following his superb performances this season for Premier League club Chelsea, former Blues' star Frank Lampard has stated that N'Golo Kante is the current best midfielder in the world.
Last season, the Frenchman was also in superb form as he helped Leicester City to win the Premier League and he is now on the verge of winning another League title this term with Chelsea.
Chelsea are through to the semi-finals of the 2017 FA Cup and it was N'Golo Kante's goal that condemned Manchester United to a defeat on Monday, March 13, 2017 at Stamford bridge.
“I compared him to Claude Makelele last season, but he’s got even more to his game than Makelele.
“I would go so far as to say N’Golo Kante is the best central midfield player in the world right now.” Lampard said.
Chelsea will now face fellow Premier League campaigners Tottenham in the semi-finals of the 2017 FA Cup championship.
