Staying alive is more important than football!
Chelsea FC star, N’Golo Kanté is prepared to miss the rest of the season once the Premier League resumes, due to underlying health issues and the coronavirus pandemic. The French footballer was part of the first day of small-group training at Cobham on Tuesday, but was granted indefinite leave starting on Wednesday.
There are reports that the French footballer has a family history of heart problems. His brother died of a heart attack two years ago, just before the 2018 World Cup, and Kanté himself suffered a heart condition scare months ago when he fainted during training.
The midfielder has been given permission to train at home and he has the full support of manager, Frank Lampard and the club’s board. Chelsea and the league have also reassured the 29 year-old that all possible precautions are being taken. With this development, the Blues may be without Kante for their last nine remaining Premier League games, if the season resumes.
