Fan View: “Football isn’t just about goals” – Chelsea’s Kante backs for Ballon d’Or

The France international played an important role in the Blues’ Champions League triumph and he is set to be crowned best in the world

French international and Chelsea star N’Golo Kante deserves to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or, according to African football fans.

The pint-sized midfielder added the Champions League title to his list of successes which includes World Cup and Premier League crowns, as Thomas Tuchel’s Blues beat Manchester City 1-0 at Estadio do Dragao.

Kai Havertz’s effort in the 42nd minute separated the English teams in the hotly contested showdown.

Additionally, Kante’s strong performance against Pep Guardiola’s Citizens earned him a third straight man of the match title in the competition.

With the success of the Stamford Bridge giants always drawing attention on social media, fans say no player deserves more of the individual accolade than the 30-year-old.
