According to L’Équipe, Chelsea boss Graham Potter confirmed that French international N’Golo Kanté will remain sidelined due to injury, as it was aggravated during training – which means he misses Chelsea’s trip to AC Milan this week in the Champions League. The club confirmed he did not train with his teammates on Monday.
“He had a reaction during training. It’s obviously not ideal. It’s disappointing for him and for us. We have to wait and see how serious it is and then we’ll take it from there.”
N’Golo Kanté returned to Chelsea training in late September after being out since the month of August due to a hamstring injury during the Blues’ match against Tottenham (2-2).
The 31-year-old France international (53 caps) was the first major player from the long list of injured players in the French team to make his return. He must now quickly find his place in the Chelsea midfield to regain his rhythm for the World Cup (20 November – 18 December).
