N’Golo Kante plays 60 minutes for Chelsea in behind-closed-doors friendly with Charlton
N’Golo Kante was back in a Chelsea shirt after taking part in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Charlton on Friday.
The midfielder has been out since August following a hamstring injury he picked up in the Premier League draw with Tottenham.
With the 31-year-old desperately in need of playing time as he speeds up his recovery, he was involved in the exhibition game with the Addicks.
In a real boost for Graham Potter’s side, Kante lasted 60 minutes against the League One side and walked away completely unscathed.
It was also a positive afternoon for the Blues as they secured a 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Silko Thomas, Malik Mothersille and Dion Rankine.
Kante’s return will certainly be a big boost for Graham Potter and his team.
Chelsea have at least 13 matches remaining this season, including 11 in the Premier League and two clashes with Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.
With dense and fast games, the Blues will really benefit from having a player of the quality and experience of the French international.
