For a player who earns over a hundred thousand bucks per week, you’d expect a luxury car and a fancy lifestyle, but not N’Golo Kante.

That humility is typical of down-to-earth Kante, who arrived on his own for the interview at Woodroffes Solicitors, London which he’s an ambassador for the foundation fighting arthritis, still driving a Mini rather than a super car.

Kante has put down to his personality; that’s who he is, he said.

“I was always this kind of person,” he said. “Not one to shout everywhere. It is my personality.”

Kante was speaking at Woodroffes Solicitors, London, after becoming an ambassador for Foundation.

The charity spend €1m on research projects every year in their bid to find a cure for the disease which they hope to by 2020, and the Chelsea midfielder admitted he’s happy to be involved with the research.

Kante said: “A few months ago I was made aware about the charity and I didn’t know about this disease.

“I learned some people suffer badly with it and it touches some sports people after their careers.

“That is why I wanted to be involved in this cause and help with the research.”
