Good News To Chelsea Fans As N'golo Kante Is Reportedly Not Injured, Tuchel Confirms

Chelsea Manager Thomas Tuchel with his central midfielder N'golo Kante during a past English Premier League game at Stamford Brigde.

Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante is reportedly not injured, despite getting out of yesterday's match so early during the first half of the game. The Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed this saying that the French international was able to feel his hamstring injury coming up, and he immediately communicated and was let out to avoid risking him in contracting the injury again.

Tuchel added that they decided to take risk of letting him out even though yesterday's game was very important to them, so as to save Kante from contracting the harmstring injury again which has been illing him for a very long time. However, the substitute to Kante that's Mateo Kovacic also delivered well according to their expectations even if he came in just after recovering from injury.

“N’Golo is not injured. He told me – and I understood him right in French – he went out before an injury. He felt his hamstrings and was worried that he would get injured if he continued to play. So we put Kova in and that was a risk because he was more or less on the bench for 20 minutes. I am happy it worked out." He said.

The Blues manager also added that N'golo Kante will be back soon before the end of the season. This means that the celebrated complete midfielder will be present during the final game against Aston Villa and also during the Champions League final game against Manchester City on 29th May.
