Man United and France midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted that N’Golo Kante is the toughest opponent he has ever had to face.

When asked during The Sunday Times interview about his the hardest time on the field he ever had against an opponent, Pogba said: ‘N’Golo. N’Golo Kante. It good to have him on my team.’

Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy has recently highlighted how influential the Chelsea man was to Pogba at the World Cup last summer.

He said: ”He’s been a star. He just wants to play football. As a defensive midfielder, what he did at the World Cup with Pogba;

I’m not too convinced he had a great World Cup, but he looked a lot better than he has done for Manchester United for one reason only; because of Kante.

”I believe I could play central midfield if I’ve got him next to me, that’s how good he is. He is the work of two or three men.

As a Chelsea player, you would want him in your team all day long. I’m just in awe of him, as a person as well.”
