Chelsea clinched the Champions League title by defeating Manchester City in the final. In Europe and the whole world, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz stand out for achieving this feat. However, the one who has received the most praise and who is considered the best of all is N'Golo Kanté.

Kanté ranks him as the most valuable player in the Champions League and they already rank him as the favorite to win the next Ballon d'Or over Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Cristiano Ronaldo. In this regard, the French midfielder refused to think about a hypothetical Golden Blaón prior to the participation of his selection in Euro 2021.

"It's a bit too early to talk about it now. We have reached the middle of the year and there are six months left, a lot of games to play. It is not useful to say that I deserve it today. that's why I liked it. But winning it is another story", said the former Leicester City player.

"It's a beautiful individual reward for a player, but I see it as the result of a season, it is not necessarily a goal or something I work for. It would simply be the reward of a beautiful season. Those who have won it are players who They have done great things throughout their careers", he added.

On the other hand, he told how he lives after his great campaign. "I live it by taking distances. We had a nice end of the season to play with Chelsea, with the aim of qualifying in the Top 4 in the Premier and the final of the Champions League. We were focused on that. Everything was good for me and for the team. Above all that is said, I don't pay much attention. I focus on the objectives of the club and the national team", he said.

"It's true that I can have an image, too beautiful. In the end, I am just someone normal, a player among so many others. It isn't necessary to say that I am the kindest or the most sympathetic, I am like the rest," he concluded.
