The former Chelsea midfielder believes N’Golo Kanté has everything to win the Ballon d’Or in the future.
N’Golo Kanté can become “one of the three best in the world” and a contender for the prestigious Ballon d’Or, claims former Chelsea star Ramires.
The world champion midfielder may not be the most publicized player of the Blues and the France team, but he is one of the most valuable elements of these two teams and is a big part of their respective successes. .
This season, he is even impressive with his consistency and impact and a two-time Premier League winner even considers that he deserves his place among the world’s elite.
Former Blues star Ramires, who left Stamford Bridge during Kante’s 2016-17 West London campaign debut, told Mais Futebol: “I watch Kanté play and there’s a movie in my head because I see myself. He plays, he has a big impact, but no one sees him wanting to show off the pitch. He’s very calm, always silent. C He’s an amazing player. He’s in every corner of the pitch. In defense, in the middle, in attack, on the sides. He’s among the best in the world. The way he plays is impressive. “
Kanté can be “among the three best in the world”
“He may turn out to be one of the top three in the world. But it’s tough for a defensive midfielder to come in and win a Ballon d’Or. It would be deserved, yes [s’il gagnait la Ligue des champions et l’Euro 2020]“, continued the former international auriverde.
Kante is now 30 years old and his performance is not declining. Far from it. Questions have sometimes been asked about his future at Chelsea, in the midst of fierce competition for places, but the various coaches who have succeeded at the head of the team have always lined up as the holder.
He has offered himself 47 appearances in all competitions this season, and the last will be tonight with the final Champions League clash against Manchester City. Recovered from his thigh injury, he stands ready to take his place.
