Didier Deschamps plays down N’Golo Kanté’s Ballon D’Or prospects

Speaking in an interview with RMC, France boss Didier Deschamps played down N’Golo Kanté’s chances of winning the Ballon D’Or.

“I do not know if it is accessible for a player who is not creative, who does not score much. He can score a few goals and put together a few assists but as a general rule… It has happened, there was Fabio Cannavaro (in 2006) or others back then, like Matthis Sammer (in 1996). As a general role, in the majority of cases, it is attributed to a creative player.”
