Not satisfied with possibly winning a famous double in his first season at the club, N’Golo Kante believes Chelsea should aim for the quadruple next season.
The Blues clinched the Premier League title last week with back-to-back wins against Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion, and face an FA Cup final against Arsenal next weekend. This would cap a fine debut campaign in England for former Juventus and Italy coach Antonio Conte, who will be thankful he made Kante one of his first signings upon arriving in the capital.
Having helped Leicester City win the title against all the odds last term, the France international was a £30million capture for the new champions last July. He has gone on to win the PFA Player of the Year award and the Football Writers’ Award for his near-faultless displays, but what he craves most is to help his side win an unprecedented clean sweep of honours next season.
“Next season will be a new challenge because we are going to try to keep the title, to win the two cups [FA Cup and EFL Cup] and also we’ll have the [UEFA] Champions League,” Kante said as he collected his award from the football writers on Thursday. “For a club like Chelsea, we want to win everything, we’re going to try and win everything. It’s a new challenge for everyone.”
