He is known to have brought along Jorginho with him for playing the main midfield role at the front of defense which used to be the domain of Kante.

Kante said that this is the role that he is liking and states that he likes making run in the game at times. Also, David Luiz has given him a good ball and he feels happy by scoring with the left foot and offers something to the team.
