Kante positive for virus

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante will not be involved in today’s UEFA Champions League group game at Juventus after testing positive for COVID-19, manager Thomas Tuchel said yesterday. Kante’s positive test is another blow for Tuchel as the English Premier League side and defending UCL champion is also without winger Christian Pulisic, midfielder Mason Mount and full back Reece James due to injuries. Tuchel said he does not know how many of his players are vaccinated and although he has taken the jab, he will not force others to do so. “I’m a football coach, I’m a father within my family... I have enough to do. I’m not fully informed about what vaccinations are all about,” Tuchel said. “I’m informed enough to take the decision myself but I’m not in a position to give recommendations publicly, I will not do it.”
