Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is not one who takes praise for individual glory, but he always gives a hundred and one percent on the pitch in each game.

After a stellar Champions League campaign where he was man of the match in the Champions League from the semi-finals to the final, there have been talks about a likely Ballon d’Or award nomination, and deservedly so.

After winning the man of the match award against Manchester City in the Champions League final, Kante played down the individual honour and was rather pleased with the team’s success.

“It’s amazing,” Kante told RMC Sport.

“It’s the result of a lot of effort, after a lot of difficulties during the season.

“The Man of the Match award is secondary. The main thing is the work of the whole group. It is pride and joy. We fought to qualify for the final. Today, we have suffered, we have the reward.”

When asked if he could potentially be nominated for the Ballon d’Or this year, Kante rather focused on the group again, as he replied: “No, for the moment we are savouring the Champions League, the Euros are soon, I will join the France team and I hope to win that as well.”
