Man Utd ace Pogba: Chelsea midfielder Kante cheats a lot

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says France teammate N'Golo Kante knows how to cheat.

Pogba told beIN Sports how the Chelsea ace, 30, uses his "cunning" to win, as well as praising his technical ability and attitude.

He said: "He cheats a lot. A lot. At card games, board games. Honestly, I'm telling the truth. He cheats. He says he doesn't cheat, but he does. He uses cunning. He's a smart kid, N'Golo. But it's okay. You have to love him.

"He's the most beloved player in the history of football. You've got to love him, you cannot hate him, it is not possible. He is humble, kind, professional. He will never complain, he will work.

"He's got everything. He's good technically, with a good passing quality, and he's everywhere on the pitch. I even say he appears out of the ground! You don't see him, and - poof - he's out! He gets the ball, he has the finish. He's everywhere.

"To have a player like that by your side, what more can you ask for?"
