Chelsea goalie Willy Caballero has revealed Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante had symptoms of the coronavirus during the lockdown despite testing negative last week.

Kante was among those who attended the first day of training but the midfielder was granted permission to skip training due to fears of contracting the virus.

Caballero told TNT Sports: “It’s very understandable. He tested negative for Covid-19 but he had a bad time of it during quarantine with symptoms of the virus that gave him that fear.

“N’Golo is a very humble and hard-working person who is always smiling and he must have his reasons to lift up his hand and say what he’s said.”
