Chelsea midfield general N’Golo Kante has been named as the French Player of the Year for 2017 by France Football magazine.

Kante won the award ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, who were second and third respectively, after receiving a total of 92 votes.

Having helped Chelsea to the league title last season, Kante definitely deserves to win the award.

Kante took the prestigious award following a vote among previous winners – including 2016 winner Antoine Griezmann, France boss Didier Deschamps and ex-UEFA president Michel Platini – as well as the current editor in chief of France Football.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
