Kante Back In Training After Scare
N`golo Kante`s mysterious absence from Chelsea`s matchday squad has been revealed. It seems that on Friday, the Frenchman fainted in the clubs Cobham dressing room after training on Friday.
According to The Evening Standard doctors from the club attended Kante immediately and carried out a series of tests, including cardiology tests, which all came back clear. Having got those results Kante travelled to Manchester for the weekend`s game but was feeling unwell on the morning of the game.
Antonio Conte took the decision not to risk playing Kante. Earlier in the day, news had broken of the sad loss of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori, someone Conte and his backroom staff knew very well from their time with Italian national squad.
Having now been given the all-clear, Kante trained at Cobham on Monday afternoon. Whilst no cause was found, the possibility of a link with the recent cold weather England has experienced has been mooted.
It's believed that N'golo will be fit to face Crystal Palace this weekend and Barcelona during the following week.
