Chelsea have been handed a major boost ahead of the Premier League’s restart with the return of N’Golo Kante to full first-team training.
Kante had been one player vocal about his concerns of footballers returning to football in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic – choosing not to train fully as a result.
However, it appears that the midfielder’s fears have been eased as he trained with his team-mates on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old looked at ease at the Blues’ Cobham base as he participated in some rondo drills before calmly scoring later in a practice match.
Kante had returned to training at the end of last month, but was following an individual programme instead.
There were fears he may miss the rest of the campaign but those now appeared to be allayed as Chelsea try to consolidate their place in the top four.
