Sarri has requested N’Golo Kante must enhance the attacking aspect
MAURIZIO SARRI has requested N’Golo Kante must enhance the attacking aspect of his game to make his side more ruthless.
The Italian manager conceded his side were anxious as they produced a scrappy and unconvincing 2-0 win against rock-bottom Fulham.
Kante, 27, answered to the manager’s criticism of his performance against Spurs by grabbing an assist after only four minutes.
He stole the ball off Jean Michael Seri and drove forward before playing the ball into Pedro to open the scoring.
But Sarri is demanding more from the player of the year in order to get his side scoring more goals.
He stated: « He played extremely well, he protected exceptionally well.
“He needs to improve more in an attacking point of view but it’s natural. For France he plays with two midfielders.
« He played in a more focal position last season so I think it is normal that he needs to improve.
« Today he was better since when the ball was on the opposite side of the pitch he was nearer to Jorginho. I can only remember one mistake from him that came in the first half.”
Sarri trusts his open pummeling of his side’s execution against Tottenham may have added extra nerves to their performances.
