N'Golo Kanté is a French professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for English club Chelsea and the France national team.

He made his senior debut at Boulogne and then spent two seasons at Caen, the latter in Ligue 1. In 2015, he joined Leicester City for a fee of £5.6 million and became an integral member of the club's first ever Premier League win in his only season at the club. The following year, he joined Chelsea for a reported fee of £32 million, winning the league again in his first season. He also won the PFA Players' Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year and became the first outfield player to win back-to-back English league titles with different clubs since Eric Cantona in 1992 and 1993.

Kanté made his senior international debut for France in 2016. He was included in their squad that finished runners-up at that year's European Championship. Description provided by Wikipedia

I know it's impossible to have the answer. But is this posted by N'Golo himself? The word "breaK" catches my attention.

Alhamdulillah, good luck for the next game!

I am blessed to witness the Kante's period #Chelseafc

Congratulations broo ALLAH basarilarinin devamini getirsin InsaAllah ❤️❤️❤️

Congratulations kanté we are so proud of u.i knew there was something special about u the day i dream of u giving me a watch lol keep up the good work #big Chelsea fan

well done Kante ....just keep it up ❤️

Si le ballon d'or n'était pas devenu un trophée du meilleur attaquant du monde à cause des footix, vous l'auriez sûrement gagné, comme Iniesta, qui l'a jamais eu.

Romain Lroy Thibault Martin cette équipe est MON-STRU-EUSE Juste.. Je comprends pas ce qu'Alves fait là (je l'aime beaucoup mais..) Et De Gea c'est une blague encore ? Karius remplaçant aussi ?

Il est petit il est gentil il a stoppé leo Messi mais on sait tous que c’est un tricheur N’Golo Kanté , N’GOLO KANTÉEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Best midfielder in the world

C'était Toi le number one de la soirée comment t'étais claaaaasse! 😍 Trop canousse avec le p'tit smocking t'étais sapé comme jamais! ❤

Je ne sais pas si tu liras tous les com tellement il y en a en tout cas merci à toi de nous montrer que l amour du foot existe ton parcours est un exemple : toujours travailler, croire en ce que l'on fait mais surtout faire les choses sans calcul, être sur le terrain ce que l'on est : généreux. Alors ce qui t'arrive depuis Boulogne est mérité...bravo et merci M. Kante

So proud of u babe, keep down to earth Ngolo❤😍

Quentin Cauet Tu jours contre cette équipe tu es pas bien. Par contre je sais pas ce que Dani Alves fou la mais bon.

Plus que mérité !! Nous sommes tous fier d'avoir en équipe de France un milieu aussi humble, discret et très talentueux !! Force et courage pour les prochains matchs...

congratulations Kante, you deserve the best, if they had included the award for humbleness, i bet you would take position number 1💪

Cante u deserve to be the best player in the world

Its not a surprise that you are among the world eleven, we are very proud of you.

Congratulations! But I hope Sarri play u in ur normal position henceforth. Going forward too much isn't ur thing

Looooool Ter Stegen better than De Gea and Dani Alves its a grand-papa!!!

You are the best player for all. noboby deny this. So motivated and fantastic. I will always on your side, Kante.👏👏👏👏👏🤩🤩

Qu Allah te donne encore plus et plus car tu mérite largement tu es bon autant qu homme avant d être bon autant que joueur merci pour l‘exemple que tu donne à nos enfants un grand merci

it's an honour for the other players to be in the same team with you

Congratulations but I think if it's possible tell the Chelsea coach that you prefer playing in front of the Central defense than your current position since some of us who know your ability for long knows where you're master on your own

Your Best Midfielder in the primer leg😊💙

I am a Tunisian citizen and I am one of your admirers and fans. You are a skilled player and you have a future in football. It will be a myth one day and remember my words. I was running away from school to watch you play together. Chelsea watching Chelsea shows for you and Hazzard. I hope to be on the stands on the day and encourage you. I hope that you will quickly oblige me, so I am obliged to talk to you

My advice to you is that keep making African proud and don't forget your root that is more important too..

I ll vote Kante for the best player in the world ,he works hard note the average distance he travel in 90min explains he is a workaholic
