Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is known to be one of Chelsea’s quieter players but he is a player you will always see with a huge smile on his face. This has made some call him the smiling assassin because despite his huge smile, he always destroys his opponents on the pitch.
However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte doesn’t think Kante’s smile is a smile of an assassin but a good smile.
“Ah, assassino,” Conte said. “No, no. It’s a good smile. Not an assassin’s smile.
“It’s the smile of a good guy, and he is a really good guy.
“You try to talk with him and he’s always smiling. During training sessions he works a lot, but always with a smile.
“To see this, it’s great for the other players, the staff, for me, the people who work at Chelsea.”
