​Chelsea midfielder Kante: We want more and more trophies

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is not losing his appetite for trophies.

The Blues picked up the Club World Cup at the weekend, defeating Brazilian side Palmeiras 2-1 in extra time in Abu Dhabi.

Kante, who was involved in the game, is looking forward to the Carabao Cup Final against Liverpool at the end of February as another chance to lift silverware.

He said: "We know there are many more important games coming with the final of the Carabao Cup, we're still in the Champions League, we have to do well in the Premier League and the FA Cup is coming.

"So many great things are ahead of us. We hope we will enjoy many more nights like these.

"I don't know what we can achieve, but what we want is to get the best out of our team so we compete for everything. We will go for every trophy."

"We took it very seriously," he added on the CWC.

"For many of the players, we've never played this tournament, the club had never won it and to have the privilege to play it and win it is very special. It's a very nice feeling.

"It's the first time for the club and we're happy to be part of that, to have done it. Also, for us, it is the following of the success of the Champions League.

"This is special. It's a nice moment, we're all together and it's another trophy."
