Kante, along with Pogba, is considered among the best midfielders in the game, and the pair were key to France's World Cup success in 2018.
The 30-year-old is among a small selection of player to have won the Premier League with two different clubs and Pogna says Kante's "cunning" is key, even if he does cheat elsewhere.
"He cheats a lot. A lot," Pogba told beIN Sports. "At card games, board games. Honestly, I'm telling the truth. He cheats. He says he doesn't cheat, but he does. He uses cunning. He's a smart kid, N'Golo. But it's okay. You have to love him.
"He's the most beloved player in the history of football. You've got to love him, you cannot hate him, it is not possible. He is humble, kind, professional. He will never complain, he will work.
"He's got everything. He's good technically, with a good passing quality, and he's everywhere on the pitch. I even say he appears out of the ground! You don't see him, and — poof — he's out! He gets the ball, he has the finish. He's everywhere.
"To have a player like that by your side, what more can you ask for?'"
