N’Golo Kante's season highlights show he has still been world-class in his new position

N'Golo Kante has played further forward this season

Maurizio Sarri made a bold call to change N'Golo Kante's position after joining Chelsea as manager.

In the past few years, Kante has been the best player in the world playing in defensive midfield.

He was arguably the best player in the Premier League when Leicester City won the title in 2016.

After moving to Chelsea the following summer, he was then paramount in helping the Blues win the Premier League title.

Although Chelsea struggled in the 2017/18 season, Kante was still one of the best players in England's top tier.

So, when Sarri decided to push him further forward and play Jorginho in defensive midfield, it was a decision that was always bound to cause a stir.

Kante is now deployed on the right of midfield and there are many that think he should revert back to his old position.

One man that has argued that point is former Leicester teammate, Robert Huth.

"I tend to agree with most people that he has been playing in another position," Huth told Goal when asked about Kante's position.

N'Golo Kante has adapted well to playing further forward

"We all know what he can do when he plays in his position. In my view, he's the best player in that position. It makes no sense for him to be playing on the right."

Many think that while he is one of the best midfielders in the world defensively, his technical ability leaves a lot to be desired.

However, a video has emerged on Twitter that shows he has still been world class playing further forward.

Watch it below:

Throughout the video, Kante can be seen dribbling past players, surging forward and playing dangerous through balls.

He really is some player.

Many think that Sarri should still take put Kante in Jorginho's position.

But Kante's season highlights shows that he has still been mightily impressive playing further forward.
