Chelsea striker Giroud: Kante a cult hero in France; the 'chouchou'

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is the fan favourite that everyone adores back in France, according to Olivier Giroud.

The striker shared his thoughts on his club and international colleague in a joint-interview with the Chelsea website.

He said: “'[Kante] is very quiet and he doesn't really express his emotions often but the way he is playing on the pitch is his personality.

“He is a leader by how he acts and not how he talks.

“In France, they love him. He is the 'chouchou', the favourite.

“Like a cult hero. He is always smiling and people love him because he is humble and simple."
