MALANG SARR can no longer think that N’Golo Kante deserves his ‘best man in football’ tag.
Fans caused a stir on social media after Chelsea posted a video of Kante embarrassing Sarr with a clever nutmeg in training on the way to a dazzling singles goal.
The centre-back Sarr would have gone wild afterwards too – but not with joy.
Midfielder Kante danced around Sir & Co and hugged the ball at high speed to his feet, before slamming home on the outside of his left foot.
Sir was left on his back – while Blues supporters were left on the lookout for superlatives.
But Sarr was criticized as much as admired by his fellow Frenchman.
And when a fan posted “Sir made him like Messi” the reply came back “Kante made himself like Messi”.
Another poster argued: “If Kante can do this to Malang Sarr, imagine what Mahrez, St. Maximin and Salah would do to him.”
One claimed “the thorn is a good dribbler”.

But it responded: “Achcha se kante se but what were sir trying to do.”
Sir, 22, is slowly starting to make an impact under boss Thomas Tuchel after returning from a loan spell at Porto.
Meanwhile, Kante has been rated by some as an outside contender for the Ballon d’Or.
The two made their Premier League debut at Brentford on Saturday night.
