Chelsea’s pillar used to be close to follow the American football dream

N’Golo Kante revealed that when he was a teenager, he used to have a good chance to pursue a career in American football, not football.
Kante got used to sports since he was knee high to grasshopper. With an endowed physical strength, this player can play many different types of sports, from football, athletics to rugby.


Kante revealed his special opportunity to nearly follow the path of becoming a professional rugby player: “Since the very first days of my schooling, I has been involved in swimming, football, athletics, rugby and even basketball. One day the teacher told me that when I was playing in the school, a young talent scout observed and commented that I really had good quality. The teacher said maybe I was fit to be an American football player. But I like football and this is my choice. ”
Also in an interview with the Mirror, Kante said he did not like collecting cars. He still uses the mini cooper he bought when he was playing for Leicester.
“I am not a car lover. I liked the mini from the start because it was easy to learn to drive on the left side of the road. I bought it when I played for Leicester and didn’t want to use any other else. ”Kante said.
Kante left Leicester to join Chelsea in the summer of 2016, with a transfer fee of nearly $ 40 million.
Kante is currently one of Antonio Conte’s most successful players. The midfielder played all 17 matches from the start of the 2016-2017 Premier League season, helping Chelsea to stand the 1st position with the distance of six points from the second-ranked team Liverpool.
