Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante made a surprise appearance at the wedding of Henna Khalid and Raheel Malik after he was invited by the bride’s father, Frank Khalid, who is a Chelsea fan.
While at the wedding, Kante was subjected to multiple proposals from a Liverpool fan to ditch Chelsea and join the Reds, but Kante in his normal fashion shook his head and gave him a shy smile.
During one exchange, the Liverpool fan flashed his ‘This is Anfield’ keyring at Kante and told him: “This is where you need to come, this is where you need to come.” But Kante gladly rejected his offer.
Kante was originally unable to attend the wedding due to commitments with the France national team but an injury which kept him out of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sheffield United meant the World Cup winner was able to attend the wedding.
Khalid was so excited as he told The Sun: “We became friends when I was introduced to him by a friend and he came to my restaurant Chak89.
“I invited him and originally he couldn’t attend because of his commitment to the French national team, but because of his injury he messaged me saying he was coming.
“My family and myself are very close to N’Golo and he was one of the first people to visit me when I had my triple bypass surgery operation in April 2018.
“He stayed till the end and was so nice to everyone and signed autographs and took selfies with the guests.”
