[Former Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele speaks about comparisons made between himself and new Blues signing N’Golo Kante] This position is so difficult to play. You need leadership. It’s about working with your [midfield] partner, understanding each other. I do like N’Golo Kanté, but whether he’ll be better than me at it I don’t know. He needs time to learn the position, to learn more about the game. He’s a young player I like, but I hope he doesn’t get to be better than I was!
