Generally, once an individual is so good at something, there are possibilities of pride creeping in. And in football too, one common thing among many outstanding footballers is pride. However, there are some others who, despite being so good with the ball, remains humble and keeps showing their humility – and it seems Chelsea Star N’Golo Kante fits in here.
The Chelsea midfielder is remaining humble in spite of his brilliant form by pushing off suggestions that he is the best player in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old French star has been hugely praised for his role in Chelsea’s impressive form in the premier league this season as he plays a valuable role in helping Antonio Conte’s side becoming the top favorites to win the title come May. And so, he has been tipped by some to win the PFA Player of the Year award at the end of this season.
But the former Leicester City defensive midfielder, speaking to Telefoot, said he doesn’t expect to be crowned the Premier League’s best player at the end of the campaign. He is only interested in – as others in the team, taking the remaining games one after the other.
The France international admits he is currently flourishing, but he does not feel like the best player in the Premier League as there are other good players, including some in his Chelsea’s team, who deserve the title more than him.
Kante has been impressive in his midfield position this season for Chelsea, and he has a pass accuracy rate of 88% in the Premier League this current campaign, amongst other impressive stats.
Kante is right to some extent, as his teammates – the duo of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, have been in excellent form too and are also expected to be in the race to win the Player of the Year this season.
