N’Golo Kante has crossed a point of no return due to his immense popularity and will never again be loved by football hipsters, says a football hipster.
Tommy Wilson, who was watching streamed Chinese Super League highlights while talking to us at an Italia 90 themed cafe in East London, said:
“I was one of the first to bang the N’Golo drum last season at Leicester, but the more I watch Chelsea – which isn’t often to be fair as my favourite team in the Bolivian Second Division seem to always play at the same time – I’m thinking, what’s with the poor scoring record and when is he going to play a killer pass like Fabregas can?
“I mean sure, he’s a very good player, but what’s with the whole circle jerk about him?
Wilson says he disagrees with N’Golo Kante as a choice for PFA Player of the Year and would like to see his Chelsea team-mate Marcos Alonso win the award.
He says his love for Kante finally ended after discovering RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita is a much better – and significantly lesser known – central midfielder.
Wilson compared his attitude to Kante to bicycle trends in East London, saying:
“It’s a bit like fixie bikes. I was one of the first to ride a fixie, but now you’ve got all the suits riding them too just because they think they’re cool, I’ve switched to a mountain bike.”
