According to Sky Sports, the former Leicester City star is nervous about contracting COVID-19, as is the case with Watford captain Troy Deeney, who recently stated his reasons for not going back to training this week.
The 31-year-old brought up certain studies that show that the virus affects people of various ethnicities differently, and that his newly born son has had breathing issues, and therefore does not want to put his life in jeopardy.
As for Kante, it is claimed that manager Frank Lampard has backed his player's stance on the matter, and will not force him to report for training.
