N’Golo Kante may have been the standout player in Chelsea’s win over Manchester City in the Champions League final on Saturday night at the Estádio do Dragão but the midfielder required some assistance in order to be noticed in the post-match celebrations.
The Frenchman, who stands at 5’6, could hardly be seen as the Chelsea players celebrated with the trophy after the game but the problem was rectified by his compatriot, Kurt Zouma who raised the hero in the air in order to be made visible to the cameras.

Chelsea’s Champions League victory Manchester City adds to Kante’s Premier League title, the FA Cup, and the Europa League he won since joining the Blues from Leicester City.
Since signing for Chelsea in 2016, Kante has proceeded to make 218 appearances for Chelsea, scoring nine goals in the process.
