Chelsea apparently did not put any pressure on N’Golo Kante to return to training even after the midfielder had been having a long coronavirus scare resulting in a compassionate leave.
Premier League clubs are working towards a return to competitive action on 12 June, despite the concerns raised by a number of figures in the game.
Chelsea Chief Frank Lampard allowed the France International to skip the sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays because of concerns about the spread of the disease to his family.
Kante did take part in the training on Tuesday, when a number of Premier League clubs resumed non-contact sessions, more than two months after COVID-19 suspended the initiative. He, however, decided to not continue training after this first day.
According to the Evening Standard, the Blues completely embraced Kante’s decision and did not set a timetable for his return to group training.
