N’Golo Kante joined Chelsea from Leicester City last summer for a fee of about £32 million and the midfielder has played a key role for Chelsea this season.
Kante revealed it’s special winning the FWA Player of the Year award because he doesn’t see himself as the best player in Chelsea.
“It’s special because I couldn’t even say I’m the best player but it’s very special and a great honour,” Kante said.
“It’s not only me. I owe so much to my teammates because we have achieved so much together this season and we still have the FA Cup.
“It is very special, a few years ago I was playing in the French lower divisions. Five years ago I wasn’t even professional, so to receive this kind of award means I am the kind of player I cannot even imagine being here.”
