N'Golo Kante Is The Nicest And Most Humble Person In Football

N'Golo Kante is not only an excellent, all-action midfielder who is relentless in winning the ball back, he's comfortably the nicest footballer around.

Kante is simply the one player that even rival fans just cannot dislike. Until recently, the France international was driving Mini Cooper because he preferred it.

Explaining why he bought the Mini, Kante told BBC: "I was at Leicester City and it was my first car in England. One person advised a Mini, I tried and I liked it so I bought one."

There was a story doing the rounds that he had initially planned to run training when he made the move to Leicester, Kante later denied it was the case, but did confirm he used to get £10 haircuts when he was a Foxes player.

What's more, nobody has ever looked happier than N'Golo was to be riding a mountain bike. Just look at the pure joy on his face.

After playing a vital role in France's 2018 World Cup win, Kante was too shy to ask for a picture with the World Cup trophy and needed Steven Nzonzi to encourage other Les Bleus teammates to let him have his photo opportunity.

Other brilliant Kante stories include him accepting a dinner invite from a fan and eating curry before watching Match of the Day and played FIFA, as well rage-quitting during a game against teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi but somehow managing to have a beaming smile on his face throughout.

When Kante's name was brought up in the whole 'Football Leaks' scandal, there was surely a collective gasp from football fans as it could have quite possibly tarnished his squeaky-clean image.

However, it only further proved what a top fella the former Caen midfielder is.

As per Media Part, Chelsea insisted that the Frenchman set up an offshore company and he initially adhered to their request before he then refused to receive his wage through it. Incredible.

Kante, who trained to be an accountant when he was younger, somehow manages to be humble about being humble.

"I play football and I want to be considered as a footballer," the two-time Premier League winner told Chelsea's official website.

"'I don't want people paying too much attention about what I am outside of football, what I'm doing, and asking: 'Who is N'Golo?'

"Just consider me as a footballer, you don't need to look too much at this and say: 'Oh, he's like this, he's like this, he's like this.'

"Ask me about my football, and not too much else. I just want to be a player among the players.

"I am how I am. I cannot explain it well, but I don't feel the nicest person, on the football pitch or in life, I'm just myself. If I win, I win and if I lose, I lose, but I always try to give my best in any competition. That's not because I'm nice or something. I'm just myself."

A great player, an even better man.
