Antonio Conte has revealed his thought’s on why he believes N’Golo Kante won’t win the Ballon d’Or award
Despite how deserving he his, Conte says that players like Kante would most likely take home the prize if coaches voted, as they prioritize winning above everything else.
According to Conte, the prestigious individual trophy emphasizes traits that you don’t find in the reigning PFA Player of the year.
“When I was a player I wanted to win the Ballon d’Or, but I knew my characteristics, my potential that it was impossible,” Conte said.
“I won a lot in my career. I won everything. I was captain of Juventus for many years. I lost two finals in the World Cup and European Championships, but at same time you know very well if you can reach level to win the Ballon d’Or.”
“I think in our team there are players who can reach this level. Others are not able, like me. Honestly I don’t know if Kante can win the Ballon d’Or in his life because of the characteristics of this player.”
“He doesn’t score a lot of goals. He is a great worker.”
