Biography

Born in Paris to Malian parents, Kanté began his career at the age of eight at JS Suresnes in the western suburbs of the capital, remaining there for a decade. According to assistant manager Pierre Ville, Kanté remained outside the radar of big teams because of his small stature and selfless style of play.

Through the contacts of Suresnes’ president in 2010, he joined the reserve team of Boulogne. He made his professional debut in the last game of the Ligue 2 season on 18 May 2012, a 1–2 home defeat for his already relegated team to Monaco, replacing Virgile Reset for the final 11 minutes.

During the 2012–13 season, he played in the third-tier Championnat National, missing only one league game. On 10 August, he scored his first senior goal, the only one in a win over Luzenac at the Stade de la Libération and he added two more over the campaign.

A dynamic, diminutive and disciplined player, Kanté is known for his relentless energy and excellent ball-winning abilities as a box-to-box midfielder. This is attributed to his strong positional sense, off the ball movement, and ability to read the game.

He credits his calm and composed demeanor on the pitch to his gradual rise through three levels in the football league pyramid
