Ballon d’ Or 2021: Chelsea legend, John Terry names player that should win award
Chelsea legend, John Terry, has backed the club’s midfielder, N’Golo Kante, to win the Ballon d’Or this year.
Terry stated this ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
Kante was impressive for Chelsea as they won the Champions League last season. He also won the UEFA Super Cup.
The France international will have to battle fellow Blues teammates, Jorginho, and Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi, for the Ballon d’ Or this year.
Speaking to Stadium Astro, Terry believes Kante deserves to win the Ballon d’ Or because he does so many things that players don’t even notice.
“Kante’s like 11 players on his own,” Terry said.
“What he does, he goes so under the radar. He is such a top-class player.
“I would love to go see him win the Ballon d’Or or get the appreciation that I feel he deserves.
“He’s such a humble guy. He just goes about his business and keeps out of any trouble.
“He’s been a great asset for the football club and we are very lucky to have at Chelsea for sure.”
