In a video series named ‘Breaking Barriers’ which was presented by Chelsea FC and Sure, French midfield star Ngolo Kante has detailed the difficulties he had to overcome in reaching the summit of World football.

“I didn’t always believe that I would become a professional footballer,” said the Frenchman.

“When I was younger I played in the lower leagues, I failed quite a few trials at professional clubs.”

However, Kante insists that these challenges pushed him to go the extra mile in pursuit of success.

“When I failed I watched the players in those academies and went home and told myself there was a lot of work to do,” he continues.

“I worked twice as hard to keep up the hard work and maybe one day it would happen.

“I think those failures allowed me to build myself to become a professional player.”

“If it’s something you love, you should give the best of yourself,” he said.

“If it’s not enough, we should find ways of getting better.”
