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."
