Chelsea would allow Kante to miss the rest of the campaign

N'Golo Kante

Chelsea have not set a time frame for the return of N’Golo Kante’s to training and would be open to allowing the Frenchman to miss the rest of the campaign.

Kante was part of the squad that took part in Tuesday’s session, but was absent on Wednesday and Thursday amid concerns about his health during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League is set to resume next month, despite the fears raised by some players, including the likes of Danny Rose and Watford captain Troy Deeney.

N’Golo Kante’s decision to skip training was given the unequivocal backing of Frank Lampard and Chelsea will continue to lend their full support and could even permit him to miss the rest of the Premier League season.

Chelsea have nine games left to play and, with a three-point advantage over Manchester United, are currently in the driving seat to cement the final Champions League place.

Kante’s campaign had already been interrupted by series of niggling injuries. Earlier this month Lampard concedes he felt sorry for midfielder and had been hopeful that an extended break would afford him chance to regain full fitness.

He told BT Sport: ‘N’Golo Kante has played four or five incredible seasons in terms of his individual success and he’s been used quite rightly by his managers a lot.

‘This season he’s played only about 40% of our games and even then it’s been difficult for him and I’ve really felt for him on an individual level. He’s been a huge miss for us.

‘We obviously need N’Golo Kante back in our team, one of the best players in the world. I knew that before I became manager of Chelsea and know that now from working with him.

‘I haven’t been able to have him much this year and of course going forward we of course want him fit and raring to go.’
