He told the Players’ Tribune in 2022: “Everything with NG (Kante) is authentic. Even the Mini Cooper – people laugh about it, but there is a real story behind it.

“It was a dream for NG to reach the Premier League, coming from where he comes from, and the Mini was the first car he bought when he arrived in England. So for him it’s not just a car. It has a deep meaning.

“Someone will say, ‘NG, you know what car is really cool? A Mercedes, bro. I can see you driving a black Mercedes.

“And NG will just genuinely look at them and say, ‘Yeah, OK. Let’s think about it. Thanks, that’s a good idea’.

“But he’s just messing with you!!! At the end of the day, you know you’re going to see that Mini in the boot camp for the next 10 years.
