N’golo Kante has finally treated himself to a flashy footballer’s car – swapping his Mini for a new Mercedes.
The Chelsea midfielder, who was allowed to miss today’s session due to his fears over coronavirus, is often considered one of the happiest and most humble stars in the world.
And a large part of that was down to the fact he kept hold of the Mini Cooper he bought when he arrived at Leicester in 2015.
There were reports the Frenchman initially started off running to Foxes training before being told he needed to drive.
So he went for a modest Mini for around £20,000 and clearly fell in love with the British classic.
The original one he picked up has been shipped back to France so he can drive it when he goes home while he bought an identical model after signing for Chelsea in 2016.
Even after a minor crash with a lorry on the King’s Road in Chelsea, he carried on with the Mini, even turning up to Cobham with a dented front wheel arch.
But it appears lockdown has given the Chelsea midfielder time to decide upon a well-earned upgrade as he returned after the coronavirus break driving a Mercedes on Tuesday.
