N’Golo Kanté resumed group meetings on Tuesday. He had been granted permission by Franck Lampard to resume a little later.
N’Golo Kanté worked for a long time on the sidelines for the group at Chelsea, but he is now fully capable of making his comeback.
On social networks, the London club announced that the French international resumed collective training on Tuesday. Good news for his coach Frank Lampard, more than a week before returning to the competition.
Great to see @nglkante back with the main group today! 🙌

The Premier League will restart on June 17 with two matches late in the schedule, Aston Villa-Sheffield and Manchester City-Arsenal. For their part, Chelsea have to wait until June 21 to play their first meeting, on the ground to Aston Villa.
Kanté absent of fear of the risks associated with Covid-19
As a reminder, N’Golo Kanté had asked not to resume the sessions immediately, for fear of the possible symptoms of Covid-19 due to a heart story in his family. But he had tested negative for the virus when he returned.
One of his brothers died just before the 2018 World Cup in Russia and his father died when he was 11 years old.
