Willy Caballero revealed that N’Golo Kante has the full support of the Chelsea team in his continued absence from training after suffering from coronavirus symptoms.
The French midfielder was allowed to miss training last Wednesday due to concerns about COVID-19 and was even allowed to miss the rest of the season by his coach, Frank Lampard.
Speaking with TNT Sports in a live Instagram interview, Kante’s teammate and Argentine shooter, Willy Caballero, said the French star had the full support of the team to keep his distance due to fears surrounding the virus.
He also confirmed that Kante had a negative test for Covid-19 but had suffered from “bad symptoms” in the past few weeks.
“ He tested negative for Covid-19, but he had a bad time during quarantine with symptoms of the virus that gave him this fear.
“ We respect him and we will wait for him to feel comfortable because the truth is that to do what we do you have to feel good and have confidence and after doing it again we all have to go for it before together.
Kante, who has suffered from health problems in the past, passed out in training two years ago.
29-year-old older brother Niama died of a heart attack shortly before the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the midfielder lost his father when he was just 11 years old.
