William Gallas has named Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante ‘the best player in the world’
Kante is coming off the back of a stunning campaign with the club where he played a pivotal role in the club’s Champions League success under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel.
The Frenchman is heavily tipped to claim the Ballon D’or next January after his stunning season with the club, and is also in line for a new contract with us as the club plot talks after the European Championships have finished.
And now, Gallas has opened up and claimed that Kante is easily the best player in world football right now: ‘Everybody loves N’Golo and it is easy to see why.’ Gallas told 101 Great Goals.
‘For me at the moment he is the best player in the world.
‘I know people will talk about strikers because fans like to see goals and they appreciate attacking players more.
‘But if you look at what N’Golo has done since he arrived in England it is phenomenal.
‘He won the league with Leicester, then went to Chelsea and won it there, he has won the Europa League and now the Champions League as well as winning the World Cup with France.
‘That is amazing, for me he is the best player in the world.’
It will be interesting to see if he wins that big prize in January because he fully deserves it after the season that he has had as he is one of the very best midfielders in world football
