‘Trying to kick a stone’: Yaya Toure reveals how Chelsea star is more difficult to tackle.

Yaya Toure revealed that Chelsea sensation N’Golo Kante is really tough to dispossess when he uses his tiny figure in a certain way.

Writing for The Athletic, Toure revealed that Kante used his behind to the best of its abilities when shielding the ball from opponents.

Admittedly, the Frenchman is usually known for denying his rivals of possession through tackling or intercepting.

What Kante’s stature hasn’t been built upon is a sturdy backside.

But perhaps it’s time to accept the 30-year-old’s rear-end powers.

According to, Kante only lost the ball 15 times last season in the Premier League.

Of Chelsea players to make over 20 league debuts, he ranked tenth.


Toure supported the statistics by exposing what its like to come up against the Parisian’s rock had rump.

He said:
“N’Golo Kante can be very hard to get the ball off him when he uses his body in this way — he is not the biggest player and already has a low centre of gravity so when he sticks his bum out even lower to receive the ball from deep, tackling him must feel like trying to kick a stone.”

Chelsea have a respectable reputation for breading bottom strong stars.

Toure mentioned Romelu Lukaku as having a powerful lower posture.

The Belgian is well famous for backing into defenders and pinning them as he makes his route to goal.

However, Toure’s highest recognition went to Eden Hazard, who the former Manchester City midfielder heralded as having the no.1 bum in world football.

Hazard’s low center of gravity makes him almost unlikely to slow down, especially when he’s in full flight.
