The call for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to win the Ballon d’Or has kept increasing, and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has joined to say Kante deserves to be named as the world best.
Kante was in stunning form as Chelsea won the Champions League, and produced three consecutive masterclass performances from the semi-finals to the final, which has convinced many that he’s deserving of the award.
“What I would like to say to the whole world is that the ‘NG’ we have seen in recent months has always been the same,” Pogba told Eurosport France’s FC Stream Team podcast.
“We talk a lot about his performances but he has always been as good as ever.
“There was no Cristiano and Messi in the semi-final, so it’s good to see the performances of the midfielders or even the defenders.
“I said a long time ago that it would be appropriate, if Chelsea won, for him to win the Ballon d’Or. It would be deserved, too.”
