“If you play with N’Golo [Kante] you always play with a minimum half a man more; this is unique,” Tuchel said after the game, as quoted by Goal.
“It is a pleasure to be his coach, he is a big gift for me, a guy so, so humble, and who is such a big helper on the pitch.
“But don’t underestimate his quality in passing, dribbling and escaping the pressure. Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo needed to step up because we missed Jorginho. They knew we would rely on them, and they delivered,” he concluded.
