Kante pens goodbye letter to Chelsea fans after sealing Saudi switch

N’Golo Kante has penned a goodbye letter to Chelsea after completing his transfer to Saudi Arabian champions Al-Ittihad.

Kante has agreed a deal to join The Saudi Pro League side after seven successful seasons at Chelsea, with the 32-year-old set to join former France team-mate join Karim Benzema at Al-Ittihad next season.

 

Kante departs after a decorated career at Chelsea, having signed for the west Londoners after his role in Leicester’s Premier League title win in 2015/16.

He was named the FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Player of the Year in his debut season as Chelsea won the Premier League and also lifted the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder has now penned a letter to the Chelsea fans thanking them for their support during his time at the club.

“Goodbye Chelsea,” Kante wrote on the club’s official website.

“The time for me has come to open a new chapter in my career. But before that, it is so important for me to say thank you to the great and beautiful family of Chelsea.

“Fans, players, managers, medical staff, board members, all those who have been with me during these last seven seasons in this legendary club.

“Only good memories, great victories and memorable titles won by your side. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much, I will never forget you.

“And of course last but not least, I thank my family, my friends, who have always been by my side in good and bad times.

“Without forgetting my agent, Karim as well as my advisors Rachid and Driss who have given me such precious support since my beginnings and have been a major part of my success.

“These past times have not been easy for us and our family, but we were able to stay united to face rumours and lies.

“See you soon for new adventures on the pitch with Al Ittihad and the French National Team.”
