Declan Rice is clearly in love with Chelsea.
The player is currently playing for West Ham. He was a former Chelsea player and there has been plenty of rumors and hints that he wants a return to the club and the Blues also want him back.
He has now come forward and said that Kante is his role model in football.
“The main one I’ve always watched is Kanté in my position,” he told The Times. “The way he protects the back four, the way he intercepts, always in position.
“I think I’m fairly good at that but there are still things I can do that can take me to the next level.
“Sometimes in games I get sucked out of position a little bit, attracted to the ball. I’m so enthusiastic to get the ball back for the team, I’m probably just better off saving my legs sometimes.
“I do more running than I should, put it that way.
“I’m so enthusiastic just to go and win the ball back where pretty much everything would come through me anyway if I stood right in the middle. That’s what [Sergio] Busquets and Kanté do.”
