Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has given his endorsement for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to win this year’s Ballon d’Or award.
On Instagram, BleacherReport shared an image of Kante holding the Ballon d’Or award, suggesting that it was time for the midfield general to win the award.
Mourinho gave his endorsement as he put a ‘❤️’ emoji in the comments section in response to the opinion that Kante is deserving of the Ballon d’Or.
Meanwhile, Kante played down talks that suggest he could win the Ballon d’Or for his phenomenal display.
When asked if he could potentially be nominated for the Ballon d’Or this year, Kante rather focused on the group, 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.”
