Former Chelsea star, Glen Johnson, has agreed with Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, on the player that should win this year’s Ballon d’ Or.

Pogba had last month tipped Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante, to win the Ballon d’Or this year because of his impressive display for the Blues in the Champions League and Premier League.

The 28-year-old said, “What I would like to say to the whole world is that the ‘NG’ [N’Golo Kante] we’ve seen in recent months has always been the same.

“There was no Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi in the [Champions League] semi-final, so it is good to see the performances of the midfielders or even the defenders.

“I said a long time ago that it would be appropriate, if Chelsea won, for him [Kante] to win the Ballon d’Or. It would be deserved too.”

However, Johnson feels Kante should be the man to claim the Ballon d’ Or Golden Ball.

Speaking on which player should win the Ballon d’ Or this year, Johnson told betting odds, “I would probably say N’Golo Kanté.

“You don’t often see holding midfielders win the trophy. It is normally strikers because they do the glossy bit, don’t they? But I am going to go with Kanté.”

“I would like to see a holding midfielder get it [Ballon d’ Or]. It is like the only people that appreciate that role are the players themselves.”
