The Chelsea player with the most fines is actually a Chelsea player loved by all Chelsea fans and most opposition fans.
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek revealed in an interview with Soccer AM that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has received the most fines because he’s always late.
“N’Golo,” Loftus-Cheek replied when asked about the Chelsea player that has received the most fines.
“He’s not super late. Normally you get places earlier, he’s usually one or two minutes late, or just on time!
“He comes in and smiles and everyone is like: ‘Yeah we forgive you’.”
Callum Hudson-Odoi was also in agreement with Loftus-Cheek.
“Yeah, N’Golo! You wouldn’t expect it,” Hudson-Odoi added.
“He’s always late! Always!”
Meanwhile, Kante insists he is enjoying playing in an advanced role for Chelsea this season under Maurizio Sarri. The Italian has been criticized for his decision to play Kante in an advanced role in order to accommodate Jorginho as Chelsea’s deepest midfielder but Kante insists he’s happy with his new position.
“It is something possible [to play Jorginho’s role], but the manager decides,” Kante said. “It’s fine, it’s fine. I like this [more advanced] position. Prefer it? It depends on the game, but I enjoy it. I’m with the manager, and I’m enjoying the way I’m playing now.
“It is a position I used to play when I was in France. I’m enjoying participating more in the offensive positions to change the game. I am enjoying it.”
