N'Golo Kante Tips Eden Hazard For PFA Prize

N'Golo Kante Tips Eden Hazard For PFA Prize

The Belgian midfielder is back to his best after struggling last season, and is leading Chelsea's charge for the Premier League title.

Kante stands to become the first outfield player to win successive Premier League titles with different clubs and is Sky Bet's overwhelming favourite for the annual individual award.

Kante won the Premier League title with Leicester last term and has established himself as a key cog in Antonio Conte's Chelsea side following a £32million summer move. So I kept working in my local team Suresnes, a little team in a suburb of Paris.

'I didn't get much explanation why they didn't take me in their teams but for me the main reason was maybe just that I wasn't good enough.

"I am not one of the best midfielders in the world or something like that".

"I think N'Golo has to improve in this situation. That is why I didn't go to Arsenal and went to Chelsea", Kante said when asked about interest from the Gunners, as quoted by Goal.

"If he is able to, he is a top, top player".

Given the respective seasons the two have enjoyed in 2016-17, there will likely be huge frustration among Arsenal fans to learn Kante could have been an Arsenal player.

Kante cost Chelsea £32million in the summer, after the France global shone in the middle of the park for the Foxes in their spectacular campaign last season. I play with some talented players like Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic and Nathaniel Chalobah.

N'Golo Kante was speaking at Woodroffes Solicitors, London, after becoming an ambassador for Foundation Arthritis.
