Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has emerged as one of the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or award thanks to his stellar performances that helped Chelsea win the Champions League.

Kante ran the show in Chelsea’s charge to win the Champions League, and in the games against Real Madrid in the semi-final and final against Manchester City, the Frenchman was in spectacular form.

Meanwhile, Kante has revealed that it’s too early to talk about the Ballon d’Or, as he believes that there’s still six months to go.

“It’s a bit early to talk about it now. We are in the middle of the year, there are six months left, and lots of matches and competitions to play. It’s not necessary to say today that I deserve it,” he told a press conference.

“A few years ago I was in the top 10. It was the first time and it was nice. But winning it is another story.

“It’s a great individual reward. I see it as the result of a good season for the players. It’s not a goal I’m working on. Those who won it in the past are players who have achieved great things during their career.”
