Chelsea ‘allow Kante to miss training’ over fears around Premier League restart

N'Golo Kante was granted permission to miss Chelsea's second day back training due to fears over the Premier League's restart.

The Frenchman returned to the Blues Cobham training base after testing negative for coronavirus.

But the midfielder has concerns over whether returning is safe given the current state of affairs in the UK and Frank Lampard gave him consent to miss Wednesday's training session.

Kante himself suffered from a health scare in March 2018 when he passed out in front of his team-mates at the club's training ground.

Cardiology tests did not show any heart issue, but he missed the next game.

The 29-year-old’s older brother Niama died of a heart attack shortly before the 2018 World Cup and he also lost his father when he was just 11 years old.

Chelsea's board, as well as Lampard, are understood to be very understanding of Kante's feelings and are offering him all the support they can and have made the training ground as safe as possible, reports the Telegraph.

It is unclear when he will return.

Kante's worries come days after Tammy Abraham raised concerns over health.

The striker's dad has asthma and he is worried about potentially passing the the disease on.
