The smiling assassin
SIZE DOESN'T MATTER: Kante proves that effort and determination can take you to the top of the game.
N'Golo Kante has proved himself to be the definition of love for the game. From playing Ligue 2 football to being a World Cup champion, he has demonstrated class and development wherever he has played. Despite only playing one season with Leicester, he is hailed as the key to their title-winning season. His selfless style of play has earned him recognition as one of the best midfielders in the world.
- 1. His performances saw Leicester gain a profit of £26.4 million.
- 2. L'Équipe named him as the sixth best footballer of 2016.
- 3. He ranked as the eighth best player in the world in 2017 following the Ballon d'Or rankings.
Kante is a perfect example of what the modern midfielder should look like and his effort and desire speak for themselves.
