Chelsea boss beg France boss Deschamps to let Kante skip international duty

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has pleaded with France boss Didier Deschamps to let N’Golo Kante skip international duty so he can recover from injury. The 28-year-old has had four years of playing continuously and the exertions are starting to take their toll. Kante had an injection in his knee to allow him to play in last season’s Europa League final. He spent much of pre-season in rehab. Speaking after claiming his first win as Chelsea manager with a 3-2 win at Norwich, Lampard said: "It is a difficult one because he has had four years of constantly playing. The injury from the Europa League final has affected his pre-season and then he hurt himself against Man Utd. "We are trying to get him through it but today was too painful. The international break will be great for him to get the injury right. It would be great for everybody [if Kante stays] because he’s been playing game after game after game."
