N'Golo Kante humble after winning Football Writers' Association award

19 Mai, 2017, 22:25 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier
  • Chelsea's N'Golo Kante has now won successive Premier League titles with different clubs

"Nest season will be a new challenge because we are going to try to keep the title, to win the two cups [FA Cup and EFL Cup] and also we'll have the Champions League", Kante said when picking up his FWA award. "Five years ago I wasn't even professional so to receive this kind of award means I am the kind of player I can not even imagine being here".

N'Golo Kante deservedly scooped the PFA Player of the Year award back in April, beating the likes of Eden Hazard, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku to the prestigious award.

But Kante collected more than 65 per cent of the nominations, which were spread over a record number of 17 different players.

Graeme Souness praised the "fabulous" footballer and Pat Jennings said he would be welcome to extend his run of winning the Premier League with his own former team Tottenham.

"We got lucky. I sent flowers to Leicester for letting us have him", Emenalo said at the dinner, which Standard Sport's James Olley was in attendance to hear.

United's pre-season tour of the USA also features games against the LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Manager Tony Pulis said: "City deserved to win the game - they were better than us".


Kante's manager Conte was expected to give a speech at the do, yet Emenalo instead took to the stage, and explained Conte's absence.

"Antonio decided not to do it because the Football Writers' Association couldn't find 25 awards for all of his players and he doesn't believe in individual awards".

Kante was a key member of the Leicester side that stormed to the Premier League title in the 2015/16 campaign before the 26-year-old expressed a desire to sign for Chelsea as Antonio Conte sought to strengthen his midfield options.

"But if he was here, he would say about N'Golo that he is a fantastic player, very good in all tactical aspects, but he must improve. From the Chelsea family, you're the pride and joy".
