You’d hardly see a negative thing said or written about Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante. His teammates, managers and colleagues always have something good to say about the Frenchman.

Never known to complain or moan, Kante has been an integral part of the club since his signing in 2016, and never has he been a reason for concern.

Kante is a hard worker and gives 100 percent on the pitch, little wonder he’s earned the respect of his teammates.

Meanwhile, Kai Havertz has hailed the quality of the World Cup winner and labelled him as a player who makes others to smile.

“When you see [Kante], you have to smile. He is a great personality and a great person,” Havertz told reporters on Friday.

“And a great football player. As an attacking player, I’m always happy when he is on the pitch. You can make a lot of mistakes because he always wins the ball back. He’s fast, agile and always gets his leg in.

“That’s why it’s not so nice to have to play against him in the first match of the European Championship, of course.”
