Chelsea and France talisman N’Golo Kante deserves Ballon d’Or, claims ex-Man Utd star Louis Saha

N'GOLO KANTE deserves to win the Ballon d'Or, according to former France star Louis Saha.

The Chelsea superstar, 30, has been in dominant form all year for club and country.

Kante was the Blues' most-important player as they went on to win the Champions League.

The Frenchman put in Man of the Match displays in both legs of the semi-final and the final itself.

And Kante's red-hot form continued into Euro 2020 as the tireless midfielder put in a dominant display as France beat Germany 1-0.

Paul Pogba had already called for his international team-mate to win the Ballon d'Or – which famously favours forwards, such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

When asked if Kante deserved to win the Ballon d'Or, Saha told GamblingDeals: "If he did, I believe he would deserve it.

"There is no player, not even Ronaldo or Messi, that has been Man of the Match in both legs of the Champions League semi-final and final.

"Dominating the midfield alone whilst at the same time helping players moving forward. Going forward he was just a force.

"I haven’t seen anyone do anything like that."


Saha continued: "I do remember some other winners of the Ballon d’Or, no disrespect to them, earning this amazing prize without those types of performances.

"So it would not be a scandal at all if Kante gets his hands on the trophy, he’s been unreal.

"He plays as two players, playing outside of his role, moving forward and doing things that he’s not supposed to do.

"Those aren’t the characteristics of Messi or Ronaldo, where they stick to their job, scoring goals and amazing individual things…

"But it’s also about being able to do both. He’s unbelievable."
