It seems everyone wants Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to win the Ballon d’Or this year, especially after his performance in the Champions League.
It’s still halfway through the year, and there is still a lot to play for. However, if France win the European Championship, and Kante continues with his magnificent performances then Kante could have one hand on the Ballon d’Or already.
France and Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard has urged his French teammates to bring home the Euro 2020 trophy so Kante could claim the Ballon d’Or.
He told EuroSport: “N’Golo is N’Golo. The guy has six lungs. He never stops.
“He’s a great guy and he proves he’s one of the best players in the world. I hope we will win the Euro to allow him to win the Ballon d’Or.
“He has deserved it so much for a few years, he’s a great player. But we are not there yet.”
