Manager Frank Lampard and Chelsea are trying everything in their power to help ease troubled asset N’Golo Kante back training.
Testing, testing, and Return to Training Protocol have seen more success than failure in the short amount of time since it’s been implemented. The only worry since the reopening of football are those unwilling to step back on the pitch, concerned for theirs and other’s health.
The French World Cup winner was one such person who was against the idea of bringing football back due to previous personal issues he endured. These reasons are understandable and must not be taken lightly.
Some people are ready to face the virus and others with underlying health issues (or they know somebody dear that has it) are just not reading to take the risk. Adding to the negative speculation during the Premier League’s testing phase there were two hands full of Corona cases detected.
This doesn’t exactly stand in favour of a restart. One can only make the choice, do I risk it or do I not. Thankfully, the club and the player have found a way to get back to business.

Frank Lampard is about the players
Lampard has been named on several occasions for his backing of players like the Watford captain, Troy Deeney, and Man City winger, Raheem Sterling. He feels the players are not immune to everything going on and can relate to their dismay.
The Englishman needs his best 11, plus his backup infielders to be totally focused on the games ahead as the Premier League tries to fit the remaining 92 games into six weeks/weekends. To cater for Kante is a need and a good sign of proper man-management.
His fight to keep hold of the final Champions League spot is on and has become the most essential goal for the season. They stand no chance of advancing to the next round of the elite competition, having already lost 3-0 at home in the first league to a well oiled Bayern Munich.
They now only have one way of achieving their ultimate goal. They need their strongest Blues involved in the fight to keep rivals Man United away.
