N’Golo Kante stood out during Chelsea‘s victory against Manchester City in the Champions League final, but the midfielder required some assistance in order to be noticed in the post-match celebrations.
Kante, who is just 5’6, could barely be seen as the Chelsea players celebrated with the trophy after the game at the Estadio do Dragao.
Team-mate Kurt Zouma, who was an unused substitute, rectified the situation by lifting Kante in the air.
