Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is with the team in our preseason training camp in Dublin but will miss the friendly against Bohemians tonight.
According to @CarefreeYouth, Kante trained alone on Tuesday, working on his own fitness.
Kante suffered a knee injury just days before the Europa League final in May. The injury threatened the midfielder’s chances of playing in the Europa League showcase, but Kante managed to suit up and go the full 90 minutes in the 4-1 victory over the Gunners on May 29.
After the Europa League final, Kante joined up with the France squad for their European Championship qualifiers against Turkey and Andorra but was sent back home as a precaution after an evaluation of his knee injury by the France national medical team.
Since then, Kante had been on holidays and returned for preseason on Monday. But apparently he’s not quite 100 per cent just yet.
Wish him speedy and complete recovery.
