Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante has picked up another award, having been named the Premier League Player of the Year.
Kante, who recently won a second consecutive Premier League medal with Chelsea, also won the Football Writers Association and the Professional Footballers Association Player of the Year awards.
The other nominees for the award were Kante’s Chelsea teammates Eden Hazard and Cesar Azpilicueta, Tottenham Hotspur trio Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen, Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.
“It’s a huge honour to be named player of the year… and I want to thank everyone who voted for me,” Kante said in a statement on the league’s website.
“I work hard in training, I try to give my best and I work with so many very good players; that’s why we won the league two times,” Kante added.
“We played many good games but we won 5-0 against Everton, which was a very beautiful game, and also my goal against Manchester United (in a 4-0 win). It is always good to score and I am happy for these two games.”
