Kante beats Mbappe to French Player of the Year award

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. His exploits for Chelsea saw him crowned Premier League Player of the Season, PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year.
