In football, it happens that the life of a football player is turned upside down in 11 years, and he transforms from an unknown player in the French third division to the European and world champion.
This is the story of N’Golo Kante, the French Muslim player of financial origins, who joined the Polish team, which is active in the French third division in the 2012-2013 season, in 2010, and in the following season he moved to the French team, Caen in the second division.
In that season, he played all 38 of the team’s matches and led him to the Ligue 1 League.
In August 2015, he moved to Leicester City in the Premier League for 10 million euros.
And in the 2015-2016 season, he had a decisive role in the legendary crowning of the “Foxes”, the first and only Premier League title in the club’s history.
In the summer of 2016 he moved to Chelsea for $ 38 million, and in his first season with the “Blues” he won the Premier League titles with him and won the award for best player in the Premier League, and in the following season he won the FA Cup with the London team jersey.
In 2018, he was a key player in all of his country’s matches in the World Cup in Russia, at which the “Roosters” team won the title.
After the world champion title, Kanti’s continental journey began with Chelsea, as he was crowned in the 2018-2019 European League title, to be the grand prize this season by crowning the Champions League title.
He is considered the only player to have won the man of the match award in the first leg of the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid, the semi-final against Real Madrid and the final against Manchester City.
Kante became the sixth midfielder to win the “Best Player of the Match” award in the final of the continental championship.
Nominations began to increase from former and current football stars and specialized international media to be the winner of the Golden Ball for the best player in the world.
