Chelsea energetic midfielder N’Golo Kante won the PFA Player of the Year award on Sunday and Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has hailed the midfielder while also acknowledging it’s good to see a player like Kante getting the recognition.
“There will also be the chance to applaud N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard for getting winner and second place at the PFA Player of the Year awards ceremony,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“In reality it was always going to be N’Golo, he has been unfeasibly good this season.
“It is clearly the individual trophy every player in the Premier League wants to win above all others and it is good to see a fine player with none of the flash, self-selling attributes sometimes seen with certain stars getting the recognition.
“In times when celebrity, social media presence and brash loudness seem to count for everything, N’Golo shows that simply being a great player is, and should be, good enough to succeed.”
