Chelsea ace N’Golo Kante crashes his beloved secondhand Mini Cooper

CHELSEA star N'Golo Kante pranged his beloved secondhand Mini on Wednesday - but still took time for selfies with fans.

The £32million midfielder, 26, was on his way to Stamford Bridge for the clash with Arsenal when he had a collision with a lorry.

A fan filmed him exchanging details with the other driver and inspecting the damage near the ground in King's Road, west London.

The humble player has shunned flashy motors and kept his £20,000 Mini Cooper S despite earning £110,000 a week.

The fan said: "His wing mirror was smashed and his front wheel arch was all dented.

"He must have been pretty annoyed but he was more than happy for fans to take selfies with him."

The French star - who joined Chelsea from Leicester City in 2016 after helping them win the league - has said he has no desire for a more expensive car.

He said last year: “I’ve never been someone who loves a car and when I was young I didn’t have the ambition of a car or something like that.

“But my Mini, for the beginning, was good to learn to drive on the left.

"I got it in Leicester. And I still have it now. But it’s good.”

The prang at around 1pm meant he missed the team bus taking the players from the stadium to the nearby Chelsea Harbour Hotel for pre-match preparations.

Instead he drove his bashed up car straight to the hotel where he was filmed dropping it off outside.

Chelsea were set to play Arsenal in the semi-final of the League Cup at 8pm last night.
