Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has beaten Kylian Mbappe to be crowned France Football’s Player of the Year.
The newspaper’s yearly award is handed out in December to the best French player, and Kante’s 2017 leaves him top of the tree once again.
He beat Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe to the award by five votes, while Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema completed the top three.
Kante has enjoyed a hugely successful year, winning trophies both with his team and individually.
He helped Chelsea to the Premier League title in May, adding to his Leicester triumph from the previous year.
On a personal level, Kante picked up the Premier League’s Player of the Season award, the PFA Players’ Player of the Year, the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year, and Chelsea’s Players’ Player of the Year.
In the Ballon d’Or standings, Kante finished eighth – the highest finish of any player in the Premier League.
