Chelsea star N'Golo Kante: I don't cover 30 per cent of the earth's surface!

The Chelsea midfielder has been the subject of jokes this season for his incredible levels of energy.

Kante’s work ethic in the heart of Antonio Conte‘s midfield has played a key part in Chelsea’s rise to the top of the table this term.

Earlier this month Conte even found it difficult to pick out a fault with Kante’s performances this season.

And his efforts have even seen a Twitter account created, named @KanteFacts_, that recognises his running ability.

Ahead of France’s upcoming World Cup Qualifier against Luxembourg on Saturday (7.45pm), one journalist asked the Frenchman if he was aware of the Twitter account. 

He replied: “My teammates in England have brought me a few. A favourite? No, it was just to laugh.”

Asked if it was true he covered 30 per cent of the earth’s surface he laughed: “Of course not.”

Kante is well on course to achieve back-to-back Premier League titles having helped Leicester in their fairytale campaign last season before sealing a move to Stamford Bridge.

And while the 25-year-old appreciates the praise he has received, he remains focused on helping Chelsea secure the trophy with just 10 games remaining.

“I’m really happy with my season, I made the right choice when I came to Chelsea,” he added.

“We are in good position, we really do a good job. For my part, it is true that I hear beautiful things about me. 

“It makes me happy but I try to hear without listening. The important thing is to work to finish the season well.”
