Euro 2024: France forward labels N’Golo Kante ‘horrible’

France forward, Marcus Thuram has claimed that teammate, N’Golo Kante has been ‘horrible’ to play against in training.

Thuram spoke ahead of France’s Euro 2024 opener against Austria on Monday.

Kante was a crucial part of France’s World Cup-winning side back in 2018.

The former Chelsea midfielder had not played for the national team for two years before he was called up by head coach Didier Deschamps for Les Bleus’ Euro 2024 campaign this summer.

The 33-year-old currently plays for Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad.

“I have the impression that there were three of him at Clairefontaine!” Thuram joked during his press conference on Saturday.

“I have never seen anything like it, it’s horrible, it’s horrible, we can’t play anymore, we can’t play in training anymore.

“As soon as we have him on our team we know we have won.

“But more seriously, N’Golo is incredible and I think that in one week he reminded us why he was one of the best midfielders in the world. I think we are very happy to have him with us.”
