Kante asked to meet Al Ahly and Malian midfielder Aliou Dieng after Chelsea's Club World Cup triumph on Saturday.
Dieng has represented Mali internationally since 2015, and with Kante being of Malian descent, he wanted to meet the midfielder who also plays a similar role in the team to Kante.
Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane tweeted a photo of the pair after Chelsea added yet another trophy to our cabinet.
"I was amazed by Kante asking me if I could get Dieng to meet him," he wrote.
"Humility at its best. God Bless Kante!"
