France international N’Golo Kante played a significant role in the Blues’ Champions League triumph and he is being tipped to be crowned as the world’s best
France international and Chelsea star N’Golo Kante deserves to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or, according to African football fans.
According to Goal.com, the pint-sized midfielder added the Champions League title to his list of successes which includes the World Cup and Premier League crowns, as Thomas Tuchel’s Blues defeated Manchester City 1-0 at the Estadio do Dragao.
Kai Havertz’s 42nd-minute effort separated the English sides in the keenly contested showdown.
Also, Kante’s solid display against Pep Guardiola’s Citizens fetched him a third successive man of the match award in the competition.
With the Stamford Bridge giants’ success still generating attention on social media, fans claim that no player is more deserving of winning the individual accolade than the 30-year-old.

Been a crazy last 24 hours & some amazing videos & photos of last nights celebrations. Over the years we have said Ngolo Kante has carried @ChelseaFC & it was good to see @KurtZouma carrying him for once after the game last night. 💙 pic.twitter.com/8VhKOWwq0a

If Fabio Cannavarro a CB who won the world cup with Italy in 2006 is awarded a ballon d'or the same year then I see no reason why Kante (a world cup winner as well) should not be awarded the same honor as well#ChampionsLeagueFinal wenger #KroenkeOut Reece Fraudiola Reece #IPOB pic.twitter.com/AJoH1LWHwI

Did Wenger just admit to Kante being above everybody else?
