Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, has backed Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante to win the Ballon d’Or this year.
Pogba believes Kante deserves the prestigious award after guiding Chelsea to win the Champions League trophy.
Recall that the Ballon d’ Or was not handed out in 2020 due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
“What I would like to say to the whole world is that the ‘NG’ [N’Golo Kante]we have seen in recent months has always been the same,” Pogba told Eurosport France’s FC Stream Team podcast.
“We talk a lot about his performances but he has always been as good as ever.
“There was no Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi in the semi-final, so it is good to see the performances of the midfielders or even the defenders.
“I said a long time ago that it would be appropriate, if Chelsea won, for him to win the Ballon d’Or. It would be deserved too.”
