N’Golo Kante will miss the World Cup due to injury



N’Golo Kante will miss the World Cup due to injury – L’Equipe

Kante has not featured since August and has suffered a setback in his return from a hamstring injury.

The midfielder was vital to France’s success in Russia four years ago and would be a big miss for Didier Deschamps’s side.

“He’s due to see a consultant at the weekend. It’s a setback, it’s not good news, but I can’t give you anything more at this stage,” added Potter.

Kante has been dogged by injury problems over the past two years and Potter believes both club and country have to be careful in managing his fitness.

“Historically there are things which have happened which is a concern, so we need to get to the bottom of that,” he added on Kante’s injury record.

“It’s a setback at this stage of this rehab which is worrying but all we can do is get the right diagnosis, get the right consultation, and try and help him get back to full fitness and enjoying his football.”
