The Chelsea coaching staff allowed Kante to take a break from the training yesterday due to concerns over health issues related to Covid-19.
Chelsea suddenly asked Kante to take a break from training
The French midfielder appeared at the first training session at the Cobham HQ training center on Tuesday. But the next day, Kante was asked to stay home.
A source close to the 2018 World Cup champion said that Kante faces the risk of a large Covid-19 infection amid the pandemic that is raging in England, causing hundreds of deaths every day.
Coach Frank Lampard fully supports the decision and also sympathizes with the concerns of the 29-year-old student.
Most players in the Premier League have been reluctant to return to the training ground this week to begin a plan to restart the Premier League.
However, there are individual cases such as Watford, where 2 employees and 1 player are positive for Covid-19. Therefore, most of the members refused to return to practice as scheduled.
N’Golo Kante is a French national but comes from Mali. He built his reputation from the time he played for Leicester with the Premier League title before moving to Stamford Bridge.
Kante is considered one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and always plays an important role in the tactical scheme that Lampard applies to Chelsea.
Reportedly, Chelsea does not put pressure on the players until they feel comfortable again. In the time without coming to Cobham, Kante will still have to complete a separate lesson plan that BHL gave when practicing at home.
Chelsea gave he a whole season out of concern for Covid-19
Chelsea’s leader will allow N’Golo Kante to rest the rest of the season if he expresses concern about coronavirus infection.
The French midfielder is isolated at home, after worries about his health when he comes to check in at Cobham training center.
The 2018 World Cup champion has a history of fainting in a training room dressing room 2 years ago. Earlier, his brother Kante also died of heart disease.
Therefore, Chelsea fully supports every decision of Kante. If he feels okay, he will return. If not, he will be absent for the rest of the season.
Since the beginning of this week, the whole Chelsea team has returned to training to begin a plan to restart the Premier League.
Kante team-mates were shocked to see the French midfielder drive to the training ground yesterday, after making his first appearance on May 19.
Lampard’s army currently has 9 rounds in the English Premier League competing for the ticket in the top 4 for the Champions League next season.
Therefore, Lampard hopes Kante will return soon. But he also prepared the option of not having the service of one of the best elements in the remaining games of the season.
The Premier League still aims for the tournament to return by the end of June, despite the reaction from many sides.
