The N’Golo Kanté Birthday Story Is Sad Enough To Make The Toughest Person Cry

This story got me feeling like Spain but without the “s.”

If FIFA gave out an award each year for the least-hated player, then N’Golo Kanté would win every year. The Chelsea midfielder simply has no haters due to how humble he is. With the man being so loved worldwide, it makes the Kanté birthday story even sadder.

Felipe Saad, one of Kanté’s former teammates on Ligue 2 side Caen, told Brazilian outlet Uol Sport a heart-tugging story about one of his interactions with the Frenchman.

Saad explained how he had a good relationship with Kanté and took the quiet player under his wing. He then went on to tell the time he invited Kanté to his birthday get-together.

"In September, I called him for my birthday. The party was small, there were only two or three more players, and it was in an English restaurant,” Saad said. "Suddenly, he arrived at the restaurant with a box of chocolates, all ashamed.

“He apologized for the gift and said he didn’t know what to get because he had never been invited to a birthday party before.”

Kanté had never been invited to a birthday party before. 

When the Frenchman was with Caen he was only 22. At the age of 22, poor Kanté had never been invited to a birthday party before.

Sometimes it’s the humblest and most loved people who might feel alone.

Sad Kanté means sadness for everyone. Allow me to spam happy Kanté videos and pictures to make us all feel better.

Much better.
