Nobody needs to tell us that N’Golo Kanté is both a fantastic footballer and a lovable man. Even if he cheats at cards, by his own admission (a fact that was also immortalized in song at the World Cup).
The rest of the league and the rest of the world are slowly catching on as well, one precious moment at a time. Some probably cottoned on after The Greatest Midfielder in the World™ was too shy to ask for a touch of the FIFA World Cup Trophy after France bounced plucky Croatia in the final.
This is the best video you will watch this week. N’Zonzi had to ask the French players to let Kanté touch the trophy since Kante was too shy to ask for it. Such a humble man. pic.twitter.com/bL8vGwOp9Q— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) July 16, 2018
For one Arsenal fan, the moment of enlightenment came this weekend. After watching Chelsea top his team 3-2 and while in the process of drowning his sorrows out on the town, who should he run into but our humble hero? Who then proceeded to do the most Kanté thing ever by trying to comfort him.
Just met this man. Told him I was an arsenal fan and I was upset about the game this weekend but he smiled at me and said “sorry”. What a guy pic.twitter.com/L8sukTnc7L— Sharky (@afcSharky) August 19, 2018
So there you go, one more convert.
And know this, Sharky the Arsenal Fan, Kanté will never let you down. He is, as they say, the genuine article.
Also, he smells good.
