N’Golo Kante reacts to Ballon d’Or nomination call after Chelsea’s Champions League victory.

N’Golo Kante reacts to Ballon d’Or nomination call after Chelsea’s Champions League victory.

Chelseastar N’Golo Kante has distanced himself from proposals that he should be nominated for this year’s Ballon d’Or following Chelsea’s success over Manchester City in the Champions League final.

Thomas Tuchel’s side triumphed in Porto as Kai Havertz’s first-half goal was sufficient to see of Pep Guardiola’s men at the Estadio do Dragao.

Kante, meanwhile, produced another majestic performance at the heart of Chelsea’s midfield and was named Man of the Match for his powerful performance.

The France international has been one of Chelsea’s key players this summer and he is now being tipped as an early contender to win the Ballon d’Or later this year.

But Kante was keen to play down the chance of winning the highly coveted prize after Chelsea’s victory in the Champions League.

“It’s amazing,’ Kante told RMC Sport.

“It’s the result of a lot of effort, after a lot of difficulties during the season.

“The Man of the Match award is secondary. The main thing is the work of the whole group. It is pride and joy. We fought to qualify for the final. Today, we have suffered, we have the reward.”

When questioned if he could potentially be drafted for the Ballon d’Or this year, Kante 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.”

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud was full of applause for Kante’s excellent performance in the final.

“He’s huge,” said Giroud.

“He recovered fifty balls, he hurt them … I don’t know what to say, this guy is incredible, he runs everywhere, he makes the difference, he fills in gaps, he collects balls.

“With him we have the impression of having twelve on the pitch.”
