N’Golo Kante reveals why he joined Chelsea
TVC E. Newly signed Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante says a speech from Antonio Conte convinced him to leave Premier League champions Leicester for Stamford Bridge.
The 25-year-old signed for Chelsea on Saturday in what was a club-record sale for Leicester with the fee thought to be worth around £32million to the reigning champions.
Kante was part of the France squad which reached the final of Euro 2016 on home soil.
As part of an Instagram post which also paid tribute to the victims of the Nice terror attack, Kante said words from new Blues boss Conte were enough for him to leave the title holders.
“At the beginning of the new season, I chose to join @chelseafc,” he wrote.
“It is a great club, which has just recruited a great coach and want to reach high ambitions. The club’s project and the coach’s speech have convinced me to join this new ambitious adventure.
“I am now waiting to see my new club and give everything for a successful summer and season of course!!”
“The 2015/2016 past season will remain an important season for me,” he wrote.
