Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba is convinced N’Golo Kante was the best player in the world for 2021.

According to Pogba, Kante’s immense influence to help Chelsea to the UEFA Champions League glory, which were Man of the Match awards for two semi-final legs and the final, set the small French midfielder apart.

“What I would like to say to the whole world is that the ‘NG’ we have seen in recent months has always been the same,” he told Eurosport, as cited by Soccer Laduma.

“We talk a lot about his performances but he has always been as good as ever.

“There was no Cristiano and Messi in the semi-final (of the Champions League), so it’s 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.

“He’s always performed well. I’m not surprised what he’s doing, I’m just surprised that he’s still doing it. He has always played matches like that,” Pogba concluded.
