Pogba misses in nomination, as Kante beats Mbappe to French Player of the Year award

1 min read

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante capped a fine 2017 by being named France Football’s French Player of the Year.

Kante beat Paris Saint-Germain star and fellow France international Kylian Mbappe to the award on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old, who succeeded last year’s winner Antoine Griezmann, edged Mbappe by five votes, while Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema finished third.

Kante, who led Leicester City to a remarkable Premier League title success two seasons ago, helped Chelsea to the top-flight crown in 2016-17.

Kante, who finished eighth in the Ballon d’Or behind record-equalling winner Cristiano Ronaldo, also took out Chelsea’s Players’ Player of the Year award.
