Intimidating UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has made a big Ballon d’Or claim about Chelsea superstar N’Golo Kante.
“Just look at that a work he does for the teams that he plays for,” Khabib Nurmagomedov said.
“In my opinion, based on the first half of 2021, he deserves the Ballon d’Or.”
Moreover, Kante’s Ballon d’Or hopes were dealt some sort of blow when France crashed out of Euro 2020 at the round of 16.
Regardless, his fine performances for Chelsea in the Champions League still makes the French midfield enforcer a strong contender for the award.
Elsewhere, fans have as well backed another Chelsea midfielder Jorginho for the big prize, especially if he could help his Italy side to Euro 2020 glory having made it to the last four.
