N'Golo Kante May Be Chelsea's Highest-Paid Player, But He'll Still Be Driving A Mini Cooper

N'Golo Kante may have just signed a £290,000-a-week five-year contract to become Chelsea's highest-paid player but it almost certainly won't go to head.

The loveable Frenchman is humble as ever and that is reflected in the car he drives - Kante still rocks up to training in a Mini Cooper S because that's his preference.

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

For a bit I had actually thought maybe the whole Kante Mini Cooper thing was a myth and that maybe he actually drove a Range Rover or Lamborghini.

However, when I went to Chelsea's Cobham training ground for interviews with Eden Hazard, Willian and Jorginho, I saw it with my own eyes - Kante driving out of the complex in his Mini and signing autographs for fans.

It's actually a miracle that Kante actually drives to training full stop. In a story that is typically brilliant of the French midfielder, he wanted to cover all that distance without the help of a car, according to The Guardian's Daniel Taylor.

The report revealed that the 27-year-old had to be persuaded to buy a car when he first moved to England because he thought he would just run to training everyday.

Always be yourself. Unless you can be N'Golo Kante. Then always be N'Golo Kante.
