Kante reveals how series of rejections inspired him to the brink of history

Date Posted,April 7, 2017

It is hard to believe now, but N’Golo Kante was once not wanted and not good enough.

Typically, that was the self-assessment of the humble, reluctant hero now helping power Chelsea towards glory and heading for a piece of Premier League history.

Six more wins will guarantee Chelsea the title and Kante, 26, a place in the record books as the first outfield player to win back-to-back Premier League’s with two different clubs.

It is a potential success Kante could never have imagined just two years ago when he was at French strugglers Caen, never mind during his teens.

“When I was young, between 13 to 18, I tried to get into professional academies like Rennes, Lorient, Sochaux maybe four or five different ones,” he said.
