William Gallas has named Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante “the best player in the world” as France prepare to launch their Euro 2020 campaign.

The defending world champions Blues are among the favorites to win this summer’s competition and begin their campaign with a massive group game against Germany on Tuesday.

Kante is coming out of a breathtaking campaign with Chelsea where he played a pivotal role in the club’s Champions League success under Thomas Tuchel.

And former Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham defender Gallas believes now is the time for his compatriot to be universally recognized as the best on the planet.

“Everyone loves N’Golo and it’s easy to see why. Gallas said 101 Grands Goals.

“For me, at the moment, he is the best player in the world.

“I know people will talk about attackers because the fans like to see goals and they like to attack players more.

“But if you look at what N’Golo has done since coming to England, it’s phenomenal.

“He won the league with Leicester, then went to Chelsea and won it there, he won the Europa League and now the Champions League as well as the World Cup with France.

“It’s incredible, for me he’s the best player in the world. “
