“He’s a silent guy who does his business quietly” – David Seaman compares Chelsea star to ex-Arsenal man Gilberto Silva

 

Arsenal legend David Seaman has compared Chelsea star N’Golo Kante to former Gunners midfielder Gilberto Silva. The former goalkeeper was speaking on his Seaman Says Podcast when he made the comparison whilst lavishing praise on the Blues midfield ace.

Kante had been linked with a move to Arsenal in this summer transfer window, although rumors of a move have grown cold. However, Seaman would appear to back the transfer if it did come to fruition (via HITC ):

“When you watch Kante you think, how long can he go on for? But his stats are still way up there, the ground that he covers and he’s one of those players, he’s like Gilberto Silva was at Arsenal where they don’t get a lot of attention and they link everything up.”

“He’s linking the defence to the midfield and the midfield to the attack. He’s a silent guy who does his business quietly, but he gets a lot done.”

The Blues midfielder has been a mainstay in the Stamford Bridge side since arriving from Leicester City in £32.2 million. The French star has made 260 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 13 goals whilst providing 15 assists. He has earned huge praise for both his abilities on the pitch and his character, of which he seems to be a positive influence in the Blues’ dressing room.
