Kante stays away from Chelsea training over virus fears

N'Golo Kante has not trained with Chelsea since Tuesday

Although N'Golo Kante returned to Chelsea for training earlier this week, the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor has now reportedly decided he will not train under the current circumstances.

Kante's decision follows a similar stance taken by Watford captain Troy Deeney.

"I think everybody is in a different situation with their family and at home".

"I fully respect the lads that don't feel comfortable as of yet, and I hope that they respect my opinion and that of the other players who have come back".

"It's obviously odd and something that we're not used to, but at the moment it's just getting the base fitness, the physical fitness and I think it's good mentally as well to come into the training ground and get used to the surroundings again".

While use of the app is voluntary, it is estimated that it will initially be used by at least one fifth of the population. They also say they will continue to support the efforts of public health agencies around the world.

"I can only really speak for us, but I fully respect people in different situations who don't feel comfortable".

The midfielder was allowed to skip the training by coach Frank Lampard after registering a negative coronavirus test and conducted his first socially distanced session on Tuesday.

English soccer was halted in mid-March due to the Covid-19 pandemic but clubs can now train in small groups as part of the Premier League's "Project Restart", which envisages a return to play in June.

Kante has been a hugely important player for the Blues over recent years and has made 18 appearances in the Premier League this season with three goals to his name.

Deeney, meanwhile, has not returned to training because of fears over the safety of his five-month-old son, who has experienced breathing difficulties.
