Chelsea midfielder Kante unhappy with French song: I'm no cheater

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante admits he's unhappy with a song created in tribute to his World Cup by Les Bleus fans.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti is being blamed for the inspiration behind the ditty.

"I've already seen him let go, smile and even cheat in card games," said Umtiti during the World Cup, tongue in cheek.

This led to the song, "He is small, he is nice, he stopped Leo Messi but we all know he's a cheater N'Golo Kanté!"

Kante has since admitted: "This song has spread during the World Cup and it's a little anecdote that will remain an unforgettable moment for me at this World Cup. But I'm not cheater, I'm a competitor, here the people who lose like that can make reputations but I do not feel a cheater."
