Frank Lampard provides an injury update on N'Golo Kante
Ahead of their pre-season friendlies against Kawasaki Frontale and Barcelona, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard revealed that N'Golo Kante will soon feature in either of the games.
Despite traveling to Ireland with the rest of the squad, Kante missed the draw with Bohemians as well as the 4-0 win over St Patrick's due to the knee injury he suffered at the end of last season. Since featuring in the UEFA Europa League final, Kante has missed France's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Turkey and Andorra last month.
Speaking in a press conference, Lampard provided an injury update on Kante, "N’Golo is here and will hopefully integrate with the rest of the team. I don’t envisage him being too long and hopefully will take part in one of the games while we are here."
Chelsea face Frontale on Friday 19th July before taking on Barcelona on Tuesday 23rd July.
