N’Golo Kante wins French award

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been named French Player of the Year for 2017 by France Football magazine.

Kante finished ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, who were second and third respectively, after receiving a total of 92 votes.

Kante took the prestigious award following a vote among previous winners – including 2016 winner Antoine Griezmann, France boss Didier Deschamps and ex-UEFA president Michel Platini – as well as the current editor in chief of France Football.

It’s yet another richly deserved award for the 26-year-old, who also won the PFA and FWA Player of the Year awards at the end of last season having played an integral role as the Blues were crowned Premier League champions.

Kante has been named in the starting line-up for today’s game against Brighton & Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge.
