Willian, an Arsenal winger, praised N'Golo Kante on his Instagram story after he assisted Chelsea in winning the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
Kante was like a Duracell battery in one of the great midfield displays, not letting Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden get a sniff of the action in Porto.
While Willian moved from Chelsea to Arsenal last summer, he would have seen Kante in training firsthand.
The rest is obvious because the Chelsea 30-year-old has already won the Premier League, including with Leicester, the Europa League, the Champions League, and the World Cup.
On current form, he has to be considered the best midfielder in the world, capable of sweeping anything in front of him.
Willian, the Arsenal midfielder, was watching from afar and simply wrote on his Instagram story: “What a player you are @nglkante” with a fire emoji.
