Dressed in a smart suit to the party, N’Golo also brought his mother and a few other family members to the event. Kanté’s mum, who is a practising Muslim. gave birth to him in Paris after had migrated to France from Mali in 1980.

After his father’s death when Kante was just 11 years old, she made sure to raise the young Knate and his siblings all by herself. They lived up in a small apartment in Rueil-Malmaison, Hauts-de-Seine.

Sadly, mama Kante lost one of her daughters and Kante’s sister, Niama, who died of a heart attack before the 2018 World Cup.

Kante: “she made the best human being out of me, that I could be.”

Kante’s youth coach on his mother: ‘When his mother saw N’Golo on a push-along scooter she demanded he buys a car… He bought a used Renault’

 

4. As Humble as Kante:

In an interview with tribuna.com, his former coaches at Caen had wonderful stories to share concerning the humility of Ngolo Kante.

Wojtyna explains: “His friends from Caen drove their new Ferraris to the training sessions and he showed up with a backpack on a push-along scooter. When his mother saw this she told him off for it and demanded he buys himself a car. So he bought a Renault that was already used for few years…”

He calmly says why he bought a mini-car; “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.”

5. Kante loves his home:

Kante replied: "Sometimes I just stay at home only and I'm happy."
Kante replied: “Sometimes I just stay at home only and I’m happy.”

When he was quizzed by Chelsea’s new training kit sponsors, Trivago, where he would like to go on a summer holiday away from football Kante replied: “Sometimes I just stay at home only and I’m happy.”

An incredible, simple and honest Kante response (perhaps it was the response the hotel and travel giant company, Trivago were expecting him to give).

Bzymek adds: “I recently spoke to his friend who still plays in Suresnes. He went to Leicester to visit N’Golo for two weeks. He told me he never got so bored in his life. After training, Kanté just comes back home and rests. No clubbing, no party lifestyle or sightseeing!”

 

6. Kante, the calm:

Even when everyone else is aware that he is the best player on the pitch whether on match day or in a final match, Kante doesn’t get over his head in celebrations. He always has the ‘normal day at the office’ appearance.

After the UCL final win against Man City, the other Chelsea players and his teammates received their medals each one planted a kiss or two on it before passing by it. Everybody but Ngolo, who just gave it a shy, awkward pat with both hands and carried on walking.

Even in the 2018 World cup final celebrations, he had to carried by teammates for him to lift the trophy, he was just too shy and calm to ask to take pictures with the illustrious trophy. This man!

It was typical modest behaviour that is well known for the France international, who’s now a World Cup, Premier League and Champions League winner – but he never basks in the limelight like other players, despite being the best to prowl each blade of grass.

 

7. Nicest and most loved man in football:

There is not a single fan out there that hates Kante, even opposing players love the Frenchman and appreciate his efforts on the field of play. After the UCL win by Chelsea, both their fans and rival fans pushed the Kante for the Balon d’Or cause.

Whenever Kante won, the whole football world, won too.

Kante later confirmed that he used to get £10 haircuts when he was a Foxes player.

N'Golo loves to ride a mountain bike. Just look at the pure joy on his face.

What’s more, nobody looks half as happy as than N’Golo is when he is seen riding a mountain bike. Just look at the pure joy on his face.
