Chelsea supporters have taken to Twitter to congratulate N’Golo Kante following the news that the 26-year-old has been named the 2017 French Player of the Year by France Football magazine.
The Blues’ number seven has enjoyed a hugely successful calendar year at Chelsea having won his second Premier League title, in addition to being named the PFA and FWA player of the year.
The latest award is arguably the icing on the cake for what has been a terrific 2017 for Kante. Leicester’s former midfielder won the award ahead of the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema, and he even won the vote from France’s manager Didier Deschamps.
Given the current climate of the Premier League, it will require a stunning collapse from Manchester City for Kante to win his third successive Premier League title, but hope remains of glory in the cup competitions.
Chelsea fans turned towards social media to laud their number seven…
