Latest report gathered from the world of football indicates that France president Emmanuel Macron happens to be part of those pushing for N’Golo Kante to win the Ballon d’Or this year.
Addressing French radio RMC on Thursday June 10, 2021 from the squad’s training grounds in Clairefontaine where he visited the national team, Macron was loaded with massive praises for the Chelsea midfielder.
The Chelsea talisman has been extraordinary in 2021 and is one of the fundamental competitors to win the renowned honor which is awarded over a calendar year and not a season.
This is what the president had to say on the ‘To of the foot’ show;
”N’Golo Kante is a great player, like Kylian Mbappe and he is an example. He is an example for the youth of the country. When we see again the season Kante has had with his club, and I hope the Ballon d’Or too and I’m sure what we will do in this Euros.
He added; Him and Kylian are good people too, with values of effort and togetherness. They are loyal to the clubs where the come from. And I think it is very important for the country because sport is always bigger than just sport.”
