SPORTS: Chelsea Kante Misses Training Over COVID-19 Concern


Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante reportedly missed the second day of the team's training following premier league teams return to group training ahead of a restart to the remaining part of the season.

Recall that, Premier League teams have been returning to training in small groups this week, with Kante present on Tuesday for Chelsea's first session after testing negative for coronavirus.

However, the Daily Telegraph reports that he was allowed to miss Wednesday’s session with the full consent of head coach Frank Lampard and the club.

It was reported that Kante has lingering health concerns linked to coronavirus and the club will not pressure him to return until he is comfortable.

A few number of team players have apparently been reluctant to return to training, with data showing black men and women are nearly twice as likely to die from coronavirus as white people.

Watford captain Troy Deeney has not returned to training as he does not want to risk the health of his family as Hornets defender Adrian Mariappa has tested positive for coronavirus, along with two staff members.
