According to French publication L’Equipe, N’Golo Kante will return to Chelsea on Friday after suffering a hamstring injury whilst away on international duty for France.
The 29-year-old played the entire 90 minutes of Les Blues’ disappointing 1-1 draw against Ukraine on Wednesday, but will now miss the World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
L’Equipe report via a statement published by the French Football Federation (FFF) that Kante felt ‘pain’ in the hamstrings on his left leg at the end of the game.
It’s added that medical examinations undergone by the midfielder revealed a ‘small lesion’, leaving Kane to return to West London tomorrow.
Kante only missed four games with a hamstring blow in January of this year, this blow signals the continuation of a worryingly recurring issue for the world-class defensive midfielder.
