Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has allayed fears of a long-term problem with N’golo Kante, after the midfielder fainted after a training session.
The Frenchman passed out after training ahead of the 1-0 loss to Manchester City, but Conte insists he is fine.
Kante was attended to by doctors on the day, with different cardiology tests ruling out any problems.
He said: “N’Golo is fine, he trained the whole week. He’s in good form, yeah he’s fine.”
Asked to explain what happened, the former Juventus boss added: “On Friday it was very cold and after the training session he passed out briefly in the dressing room.
“After this situation, the doctor gave him many check-ups to understand his physical condition but it was all clear.
“On Sunday he was well [and could have played] but it was right not to take risks. He’s okay and every check-up is okay, is perfect.”
