EPL: McCarthy identifies Nodada that can replace Kante at Chelsea

Cape Town City manager, Benni McCarthy has identified midfielder, Thabo Nodada as the player that can replace N’Golo Kante at Chelsea.

He also said that Nodada got what it takes to play in all the biggest leagues in Europe.

“I think Nodada got what it takes to play in all the biggest leagues in Europe. It takes a lot to say that because I think there’s not a lot of players in South Africa that I can say [that of] from what I’ve seen – that got what it takes.

“I think for me, if I can make a comparison, I say if you take N’Golo Kante out of Chelsea you put Nodada in there, I don’t think people will spot the difference. I think it’s more than talent, you need tenacity, you need passion,” McCarthy was quoted by Goal as saying.

He added: “Nodada is never late, never misses a training [session]… whatever knocks or pimp, always wants to train, always wants to stay [for] extra [training], always wants to do more and in the game you see it … [he] runs the most.”

Nodada has been impressive for Cape Town City so far this season.

The 24-year-old has scored three goals in five Premier Soccer League appearances for McCarthy’s men after recovery from an injury that sidelined him for a lengthy period last season.(Dailypost)
