Pogba who is a fellow countryman with Kante declared that the diminutive midfielder is a smart and cunning player.
The Man Utd midfielder stressed that Kante is a cheat even though the latter refuses to agree he’s.
He [ N’Golo Kante] cheats a lot. A lot. At card games, board games. Honestly, I’m telling the truth. He cheats.
“He says he doesn’t cheat, but he does. He uses cunning. He’s a smart kid, N’Golo. But it’s okay. You have to love him.
“He’s the most beloved soccer player in the history of football. You’ve got to love him, you cannot hate him, it is not possible.
“He is humble, kind, professional. He will never complain, he will work,” Pogba told beIN Sports.
Kante who joined Chelsea from Leicester City has turned out to become one of the most popular midfielders in Europe.
He is also considered a key player by the majority of the coaches that have coached Chelsea since he arrived at Stamford Bridge.
Kante next focus will be on winning Man City in the UCL come May 29th.
