N'Golo Kante is Chelsea's force in midfield. The range is wide, from securing the penalty box itself to helping the team attack in front of the opponent's goal.

Kante is famous for having great stamina. For 90 minutes, this French passport player can continue to run without stopping.

N'Golo Kante is irreplaceable as a central midfielder. Both in the era of manager Frank Lampard's leadership to Thomas Tuchel now.

N'Golo Kante Just Smiles Throughout France Initiation Song As Teammates Go Wild


N'Golo Kante is the gift that keeps on giving.

He is one of the most humble, down-to-earth footballers you'll ever come across. I mean, just look at this smile. How can you not love this guy?!

Anyway, enough of me declaring my love for Kante, the World Cup-winning midfielder is back with his international teammates this week as France prepares to face Germany in Munich.

On Tuesday evening, the squad gathered together to celebrate the initiation of goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte, who had to sing a song on his arrival.

Lecomte stood on a platform and tried blasting out a tune as all of his teammates waved napkins above their heads. Well, not ALL of his teammates.

The Chelsea midfielder played a pivotal and unsung role in France's World Cup success this summer.

He made more tackles and interceptions than any other player in the tournament, not to mention the fact that he unlocked the talents of another main man, Paul Pogba.

Despite all of his success, Kante remains the humble and shy person we all know and love. The fact that Steven N'Zonzi had to encourage France teammates to let him hold the trophy because he didn't want to impose sums up the man himself.

If you haven't seen the footage yet, take a low at the below. What a man.

In the aftermath of the celebrations, a team picture involving all of the France squad has gone viral.

At first, many questioned why Kante wasn't included in the photo, but he was eventually spotted hiding behind teammate Antoine Griezmann. It just sums up the man. He's not bothered about being in the spotlight.

He does his thing on the pitch and that's that

What a man.

N'Golo Kante Trained For A Completely Different Career Before Becoming Professional Footballer


The World Cup-winning midfielder trained for a completely different career before turning pro.

Kante's humble beginnings at local amateur club JS Suresnes was far from the glitz and glamour of Premier League football. Back in 2012, the Paris-born player wasn't even playing regular first-team football in the French third division.

But after being turned down by several clubs, Kante was eventually given a chance in Boulogne's reserve team. And during that time, he helped the side move up to the fifth division.

He admitted back in 2016 that he only started to believe that he could make it as a professional in his early 20's when he was studying to become an accountant.

"I was at Boulogne, in the second team - the sixth, then the fifth division.

I wasn't professional, so I kept studying because I wasn't sure if I would be able to make a living as a footballer."

"When I was 18, I got my baccalaureate [the French A-Level equivalent] and after that, I did two more years of study in accountancy.

"When I went up to the first-team, I became professional, so I stopped studying. I got my qualification in accountancy, but now I prefer to concentrate on football."

It may have taken him two years to be handed 'that' highly anticipated debut Kante was eventually handed his professional debut on the final day of the Ligue 2 season in May 2012,

He appeared for already relegated Boulogne in a brief 11-minute cameo, losing 2-1 to Monaco.

It wasn't exactly a dream debut but it was a start. The midfielder knew the importance of taking his chances.

And the following season, Kante began to make an impression in the French third division, breaking into Boulogne's first team after several solid performances in the center of midfield.

Boulogne finished in 13th place while Kante missed just one game out of 38 during the 2012/13 campaign. It was a huge breakthrough season.

In the coming months, Ligue 2 side Caen decided to take a chance and bring Kante to the Stade Michel d'Ornano on a free transfer. It was a stroke of genius from manager Patrice Garande.

Kante not only contributed heavily to Caen's promotion to Ligue 1 but he helped the club maintain a place in France's top league the following year.


In the space of three years, Kante went from playing in France's sixth division to Ligue 1. Now, the defensive midfielder is a Premier League and World Cup winner.

It could have been so very different if the likable character had chosen to progress in accountancy.

What a great story.
