Is N'Golo Kanté Muslim? Excellent Journey Of The French midfielder Kante

N’Golo Kanté is the man who can win the World Cup and won’t brag about it. The humble nature of Kante is praised by his fans and his haters.

If you wonder that N’Golo Kanté is Muslim then yes he follows Islam as his religion. Kante is a simple man and away from all the politics to make his religion a point of debate wherever he played.

The player does not only follow Islam but he is a practising Muslim too. A picture of N’Golo Kanté went viral after he was spotted in Medina (Saudi Arabia) after winning the World Cup with France. At different times he is seen in a mosque or surrounded by people of his faith.

The story of Kante is commendable and worth knowing as Kante made his way up from the ground by himself to shine among the top football stars.

Everything started in Paris on March 29 1991 when N’Golo Kanté was born. The early life of Kante was hard as he lost his father at the age of 11. Kante has 8 siblings and to make ends meet his mother had to work as a cleaner.

The start of his career was different than many other top midfielders as he made his professional debut at the age of 21 for Boulogne. Usually, players get an early start which helps them develop themselves in future.

Despite starting late and small Kante managed to impress his viewers with his dedicated performance in all the matches. Kante moved to Caen in Ligue 2 (Second Division) and helped them to promote to Ligue 1. The critics of Ligue 2 saw Kante as Player Of The Season in that year.

Kante is small in size which is not the perfect trait for a defending midfielder. Leicester saw potential in him and signed him in 2015 along with some other players the world did not know of back then.

N’Golo Kanté at Leicester City was MAGICAL and he won the Premier League in the very first season. The player was also featured in the Premier League Team Of The Season ahead of many big names. 

Kante caught the eye of Chelsea and they signed him in 2016. Kante in Chelsea was much better and he won the Premier League again in the very first season two times in a row. He also got the Player Of The Season title for his contribution to the team.

The massive success of winning the Premier League was not enough for him and he marched on to win other big titles for his club. Kante did all this and stayed humble to portray the true character of a Muslim. Kante never left his religion even after reaching the top. 

N’Golo Kanté lifted the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Super Cup and The FA Cup along with many individual honours to his own name. 

The French national won the two most prestigious international titles that many players only dream to win. Kante won the World Cup and the UEFA Nations League.


N’Golo Kanté is one of the best midfielders of this era. He has won every single major title possible to win by any English club. The roots of Kante are nowhere near the United Kingdom but this man had a better career in England than many other English players.

People always tried to underestimate him as he doesn’t have the confidence like Cristiano Ronaldo to speak his mind out or a huge fan base like Leo Messi to support him. The player managed to prove all his critics wrong and he showed the world that everything can be achieved in silence.

N’Golo Kanté will be the idol of many people in future who aim to achieve something when they have nothing. He is humble, honest, simple, dedicated, religious and the best part is his perfect Smile.
