Makelele on Kante and Bakayoko:

“[Kanté] enjoys the job. He plays for his team-mates. He’s not selfish. Every manager in the world wants a player like that in his team. He produces the quality with his plays and his runs but that’s not all, he does the defensive work too. He has got everything a complete midfielder has. He is the perfect fit for the system Conte has put on the pitch.”

“I met [Bakayoko] when I was working in Monaco and I pushed him to make that position his own. He defends with such quality now. [Kante and Bakayoko] are so much stronger together. Kante runs a lot, Bakayoko is more of a dribbler, he’s more clever and powerful in possession.”
