“It’s not just a matter of being humble. Getting here, joining Chelsea, joining the [national] team of France, has been a long journey with many challenges, ”Kante revealed at ChelseaFC.com.
“Since I was a child, training institutions did not accept me, and I often failed in my efforts to join professional teams,” he added.
“It is a thank you for my journey – to remember all the people I met, who were looking for this job, to make a living from football. I’m successful and it’s all about enjoying it all. You know how far I have come and I enjoy it all, and I go as far as I can. ”
Due to his gradual progress in football, Kante explained that he was able to adjust to fame, even though he was widely known for being a reserved actor.
“It happened a little bit,” he said. “At first, in the small towns, I was in. For example, in Boulogne, then in Caen. Then in Leicester, it increased significantly. After that the French team made me stand out in France. Now, Chelsea, in England, it is true that I often meet fans.
“It is a football-loving country. I have to deal with it. It’s always fun for the fans, so when I can and no problem, I go with it. ”
