How Chelsea star N’Golo Kante reacted to Liverpool supporter who suggested shock transfer

Chelsea hero N’Golo Kante offered a clear response when asked about a possible move to Liverpool by a fan.

N’Golo Kante shook his head and smiled when asked about a possible move to Liverpool from Chelsea by a speculative fan earlier this week.

The World Cup winner was a surprise guest at at wedding and proceeded to great several attendees and even got up on the stage.

One fan proceeded to show Kante his Liverpool keyring and asked about a possible move, but received a negative response.

The 28-year-old has grown into one of the most respected midfielders in the world in recent years after winning the Premier League title with Leicester in 2016.

His down to earth demeanour has won him a multitude of followers, and his latest act of kindness hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Chelsea supporter and businessman Frank Khalid invited Kante to attend his daughters wedding ceremony, and despite originally declining due to international commitments, turned up after injury ruled him out.

Khalid told The Sun: "We became friends when I was introduced to him by a friend and he came to my restaurant Chak89.

"I invited him and originally he couldn’t attend because of his commitment to the French national team, but because of his injury he messaged me saying he was coming.

"My family and myself are very close to N'Golo and he was one of the first people to visit me when I had my triple bypass surgery operation in April 2018.

"He stayed till the end and was so nice to everyone and signed autographs and took selfies with the guests.”

Mr Khalid also wrote on Twitter: "He must have been asked for a million selfies and he happily obliged every person that was at the wedding. He was happy to be there.

"Made everyone happy and made my daughter's wedding even more special.”

Kante is hoping to be back in action for Chelsea’s trip to Wolves on September 14 before they welcome Valencia in their Champions League opener.

Frank Lampard has endured a mixed start to his debut as a Premier League boss, winning once and drawing twice from his first four fixtures.
