Christian Pulisic says it will be 'hilarious' if Chelsea teammate gets a documentary
Christian Pulisic said Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kante deserves a documentary simply because it “would be hilarious” to see how the midfielder would react to being followed by cameras.
Kante is one of the few players who had to fight his way from lower-division football to the top.
Recently, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger shared how Kante even had to face rejections from multiple clubs when he was playing at the academy level in France.
The 30-year-old’s life story would inspire many, but it is not the reason why Pulisic thinks he deserves a documentary.
“I would say N’Golo Kante because he would probably hate that,” Pulisic told Amazon Prime Video Sport.
“So I think it would be hilarious.
“They’ll follow him around because he probably wouldn’t show you anything. He would just be really quiet.”
Interestingly, despite his quiet personality, Kante seems to be very competitive in terms of chess.
Pulisic claims he and Kante are the two best chess players among the Chelsea squad.
“Me and N’Golo have battles actually for that title [best chess player at Chelsea],” the American explained.
“He still likes to think he’s won more games than me but I think I’ve gotten the best of him recently.”
Their chess competition aside, Pulisic clearly admires Kante and what he does on the pitch.
The France international was one of the three names Pulisic mentioned when he asked to name the best player in the Premier League in 2021, along with Jorginho and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
