In May, Kante was mobbed by cheering supporters as he emerged from Stamford Bridge in his MINI on Wednesday evening after helping the club reach the Champions League final.
The Frenchman’s choice of vehicle, which he’s been using since arriving at Leicester in England in 2015, is in stark contrast to the lavish and expensive supercars his teammates all drive.
MINI Coopers start from around £16,000, making them a completely different option from the Bentleys and Ferraris we’ve grown accustomed to seeing Premier League stars.
Kante was man-of-the-match in the last win against Manchester City, but he sustained an injury in the draw against Liverpool last month, which resulted in his current absence.
