EPL: Ilkay Gundogan toughest player he ever faced

Manchester City midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, has named Chelsea star, N’Golo Kante, as the toughest opponent he has ever faced in his career so far.

Gundogan, who played in last year’s UEFA Champions League final for Man City against Chelsea, believes that Kante’s work rate makes him the toughest player he has ever played against.

When asked by Metro UK who his toughest opponent has been, Gundogan said: “Probably someone like N’Golo Kante, just the fact that you know you pass him and you feel like he cannot come back anymore.

“And then a couple of seconds later, when you think you have a bit of space and time, he’s there.

“He’s incredible, the amount of work that he puts into the game, it’s just unbelievable.”

Kante joined Chelsea from Leicester back in July 2016.

The France international has won the Premier League with Leicester City and Chelsea in the past.

He was recently included in the 30-man nominees shortlisted for the Ballon d’ Or this year.
