France manager Didier Deschamps has revealed Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has his respect after the midfielder opted out of training due to fears of contracting the coronavirus.
“Not only do I understand it, but I find the case of [N’Golo Kante] exemplary,” Deschamps told Le Parisian.
“N’Golo is whole, natural. He always has a smile.
“He has expressed his feelings. I told him, ‘Respect’.
“It is good that his club heard him and granted him his wish. You have to take into account the feelings of the players.
“Football is their job and their passion, but they cannot live the current situation in a carefree manner, without being worried.
“If the club, which is the employer, demands that they come to train, it is complicated for them not to perform.”
