BERNAT LÓPEZ / ©XTREM FOOTBALLBREAKING FUNNY NEWS! After helping Chelsea to a 4-1 win against Cardiff over the weekend, N’Golo Kante spent his Saturday evening at a fan’s house eating curry and watching Match of the Day TV show. The World Cup winner had initially missed the Eurostar trainfrom London St Pancras following the win, and decided to visit a mosque in Kings Cross, where he met Arsenal fan Badlur Rahman Jalil who invited Kante round to his house.
Quoted by BBC Sport, Badlur said: “I went to the mosque on Saturday evening to pray and we just prayed together. It’s Islamic teaching to invite guests to your house for dinner, so I asked him”.
“He came with me and my brother because he was on his own and said he was only going to go home anyway. He was on a protein diet so we had a chicken curry. He even had a cup of tea. He beat us all at FIFA and then we watched Match of the Day. It was a really nice evening”, he added.Twitter user @jahrul999 was taken aback by the good nature shown by Kante who after being invited to his friend’s house was more than happy to spend his evening there.
“I’m a Liverpool fan and most of us are Arsenal fans, but Kante is more than just a footballer. As a Muslim, he is a great role model to us and an example of a good human being. He grounds you. He is such a humble person. He doesn’t think he is on another level to you”, he said.Amazing. Totally surreal, but amazing nonetheless. All hail Kante, a man so genuinely humble, polite and talented that he has quickly come to unite all football fans, regardless of club or national loyalties, behind him.
