They call him The Rat, because he is every on the pitch and he can be very annoying for opposing attacking players. Welcome to the wiki of one of the greatest defensive midfielders in the world. He is currently playing for Chelsea in the English Premier League, but ofcourse started to really make a name for himself when he joined Leicester City in 2015. Leicester pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of the Premier League, perhaps even the very biggest upset ever, by winning the league in 2016. The French midfielder was one of the most important players of that squad and it was no surprise that he basically all big European clubs became interested in acquiring the Frenchman. Eventually he choose to go to Chelsea for 40 Million Euro. At Chelsea he quickly adopted to his new club and as such he and his teammates won the title in 2017. He is ofcourse also playing international football for his country France. Les Blues won the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the midfielder was one of the most important players in helping France lift the trophy for the second time in their history. Lets have a look at this remarkable player!
