NGolo Kante Profile
March 29, 1991

NGolo Kante is a French professional football player who plays as a defensive midfielder for the English club Chelsea and the France national team. Kante was born on March 29, 1991, in Saint-Pierre, Réunion, an island in the Indian Ocean. He began his career with JS Saint-Pierroise before moving to Boulogne in 2010. He spent two years with Boulogne before joining Caen in 2013.

Kante's breakthrough season came in 2015–16 when he helped Leicester City win the Premier League title; he was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year. The following season, he won a second consecutive Premier League title after moving to Chelsea. In 2018, Kante helped France win the FIFA World Cup, becoming only the second African player to do so after Roger Milla.

Kante's career: from amateur to professional

NGolo Kante's football career began when he was just a child growing up in Paris. His talent was quickly recognized by local youth clubs and he was soon snapped up by Lille.

Kante's impact on football: the style of play and stats

NGolo Kante has been a revelation since he joined Leicester City in 2015. The diminutive Frenchman has been a key player in Leicester's midfield, helping the team to an unlikely Premier League title win in 2016. Kante is known for his tireless work ethic and his ability to break up opposition attacks with his tackles and interceptions. He also has a good passing range and is capable of starting attacks with his passes.

Kante's impact on Leicester's style of play has been huge. The team's manager, Claudio Ranieri, has built the team's tactics around Kante's strengths. As a result, Leicester is now a much more solid defensive unit and is more difficult to break down than they were before Kante arrived. The team also looks to Kante to start attacks from deep positions, using his excellent passing range to find teammates in advanced positions.

Before NGolo Kante was a champion, he was just a boy from a small town in France. He worked hard to become the best player he could be, and it paid off. After years of dedication and hard work, Kante finally reached the top of his game. He is now one of the best midfielders in the world, and he has his wife to thank for always being by his side.


NGolo Kante is one of the best football players in the world because of his incredible work ethic, natural talent, and ability to read the game. Kante has been a key player for both club and country, helping Leicester City win the Premier League title in 2016 and then leading France to victory at the 2018 World Cup. He is widely regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, but his all-around game is also excellent, with few players able to match his energy levels and tackling prowess.
