Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed how nice guy N’Golo Kante stopped to pose for photographs with fans despite having just been involved in a car crash that damaged his beloved Mini.
Kante’s Mini Cooper S collided with a lorry on the King’s Road while driving to Stamford Bridge in January 2018.
The crash meant Kante was late to a Chelsea team meeting ahead of a League Cup semi-final against Arsenal and former team-mate Fabregas used the tale as an example of how selfless the midfielder is.
“Everybody knows he is a really good human being,” Fabregas wrote in the Daily Telegraph.
“One day, we met in the morning, we were playing at night, and everyone was ‘where’s N’Golo, where’s N’Golo, we’re starting the meeting’ and normally he was always on time.
“Eventually, he arrived and everyone started clapping and Antonio [Rudiger] said ‘what’s happened’
“And he was telling us that he’s had a car crash and some people couldn’t believe it was him and they were taking pictures and he wanted to be polite.
“His car was all damaged and the wing mirror had to be taped back on, but he still stopped for photographs, even though it made him late!”
