French defensive midfield maestro N'Golo Kanté is one of the most likeable men in football, wearing a smile on his face while playing a sport that he loves.
There has been a furious debate about what Kanté's best position is after he has most recently been utilized as a box-to-box midfielder with Chelsea. With Leicester and France, he was a specialist defensive midfielder who broke up the play and patrolled the halfway line, seldom bursting beyond it.
Regardless of where Kanté plays his best football, there is no doubt about his pedigree and achievements in the game.
