N’golo Kanté has tested positive for covid and will not be available in Chelsea’s next two games, neither against Juventus Turin in the Champions League, nor against Southampton in the Premier League.
The participation of the French midfielder in the final phase of the League of Nations is also in the air, due to the ten-day quarantine that he has to keep. France plays one of the semifinals against Belgium on October 7, while the other will be played by Italy and Spain.
Thomas Tuchel confirmed at a press conference the contagion of Kanté, who will not be able to travel with Chelsea for this Wednesday’s duel against Juventus. The Frenchman joins the also safe casualties of Reece James, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount EFE (HN)
