Chelsea Legend, Pat Nevin, has backed N’Golo Kante to win the Ballon d’Or this year.
Nevin says Ngolo Kante deserves to win the Ballon d’Or due to his excellent performances for Chelsea this season in all competitions.
It should be recalled that the Ballon d’ Or was not handed out in 2020 due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic all over the world.
Kante was the talk of the match during the 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the Champions League final last Saturday.
In his column for Chelsea’s website, Nevin said: “N’Golo had a bunch of moments that no other player could match, but then he has been doing that week in, week out.

“It was a definitive man-of-the-match performance, underlining he would be the first pick for any team, in any period of football history, not just now.
“He’s a great of the game and a player who many say deserves to be a Ballon d’Or winner, and I agree wholeheartedly.”
Kante made 48 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions this season.
