Injury troubled midfielder’s latest issue ‘not too serious’

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has had a troubled start to the season due to reoccurring injury issues much to the disappointment of Frank Lampard and the Blues fans.

The French World Cup winner has struggled to cement down a solid row of games and looks to be injured again.

He pulled out of France’s eventual 1-0 win against Iceland yesterday, and immediately there were concerns that he could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

However, the early signs look positive and France manager Didier Deschamps has confirmed that on first look, it is ‘not too serious’ and Kante might actually be in contention to play in their next match against Turkey on Monday.

Kante is hugely important to both club and country and his manager’s will be hoping he can finally be over his strange injury woes.

Speaking via NBC Sports Deschamps gave an update on Kante after the match.

He said:

“He felt a pain in the adductor 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 do not think it’s too serious for NG, but I do not have an answer tonight,” Deschamps predicted.”
