Chelsea star N’Golo Kante has maintained that his ‘nice guy’ image is always overblown, claiming that there are other nice guys in football apart from him.
According to the French World Cup winner, there are other players who are nice - as he further stated that his own status is not peculiar.
The footballer has been widely considered as the nicest chap in football, with the 30-year-old refusing to let his image rights be paid to an offshore tax haven, instead telling Chelsea he just wants a 'normal salary'.
He was so shy to take a picture with the prestigious World Cup trophy following France’ triumph in 2018.
Despite his riches, Kante is also famous for driving his mini-cooper car, not minding the fact that he earns around £150,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge.
He said via SunSport:
"I am just a normal guy. There is no need to say I am the kindest or the nicest. I am just a player like the others. I think that sometimes it is overblown.
