‘Sounds Like It’s Not Too Bad’ ‘Lamps Warned Him’ Chelsea Fans On Social Media Not Happy As Deschamps Provides Update On Kante

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante was injured in the warm-up before France’s game against Iceland yesterday evening. The 27-year-old was in the starting line up for the Euro 2020 qualifier before having to pull out.

Manager Didier Deschamps played down the seriousness of the issue, saying that the midfielder was withdrawn as a precaution with concerns over a groin injury:

“He felt a pain in the adductor [groin] muscle. He had a feeling where he did not feel comfortable to play. I made the decision [to pull him from the squad] because maybe it could get even worse. I knew Moussa would be ready. I do not think it’s too serious for NG [Kante], but I do not have an answer tonight.”

Fans on Twitter are not particularly impressed with France’s decision to call up Kante in the first place, considering his recent injury issues, but they are hopeful that the problem isn’t that serious:

Kante missed the start of the season with a knee injury. He then returned to face Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup final before being sidelined once again with an ankle problem.

It remains to be seen if this Adductor injury makes him a doubt for Chelsea’s next game. Frank Lampard’s side face Newcastle next Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
