N’Golo Kanté is again the first player to arrive at France National Team training base Clairefontaine at 6:30am this morning, to report for international duty.
Members of the team are set to arrive at 1pm.
He turned up 6 hours early, even before the players based in France!.
Kante only finished playing his Premier League match for Chelsea at Goodison Park around 6:30 pm on Sunday. 12 hours later, he’s reported for France. No messing.
That’s a very impressive effort considering he’s the most fined player at Chelsea for being late.
His club colleagues Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek wasted no time in responding when asked who picks up the most fines.
“N’Golo!” Loftus-Cheek told Soccer AM. “Yeah, N’Golo! You wouldn’t expect it. He’s always late. Always,” said Hudson-Odoi.
Loftus-Cheek added: “He’s not super late. Normally you get places earlier, he’s usually one or two minutes late, or just on time!
“He comes in and smiles and everyone is like: ‘Yeah we forgive you’.”
