Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says N'Golo Kante has been given all clear

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte revealed midfielder N'Golo Kante has trained all week after passing out in the dressing room last Friday. The Frenchman was immediately tended to by doctors, and his manager insists there have been no ill-effects this week. 'N'Golo is fine,' Conte said at his press conference on Friday. 'He trained the whole week. He's in good form. He's fine. 'Last week, on Friday, it was very cold. After the training session he passed out briefly in the dressing room. 'The doctor brought him to have many check-ups, to understand his physical condition. But it was all clear. 'I think that on Sunday he was well, but at the same time it was right not to take a risk, to give him the opportunity not to play and to rest. He's OK. Every check-up is OK, it is perfect.' Asked about the fitness of others in his squad, Conte added: 'David Luiz is injured. Also (Ross) Barkley. 'Then I have to check a couple of situations before taking the decisions for tomorrow's game (against Crystal Palace).' Elaborating of Barkley's latest set back, Conte said: 'After a bad injury and after surgery on his muscle and tendons, it is not simple. 'When you stay out for seven months, it is not possible to recover very quickly. We must be patient.' Source: All Football
