N'Golo Kante And Loftus-Cheek To Miss Chelsea Pre-season.

 Due to their lack of Covid immunization, Chelsea midfielders N'Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will not be traveling with the team on its preseason tour of the United States.

The Blues left on Saturday for a training camp in Los Angeles.

However, visitors who are not fully protected against the coronavirus are not permitted entry into the country.

Only US nationals are currently permitted to enter the nation without being properly immunized.

N'Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek won't be traveling because of their Covid vaccination status, according to a statement released by Chelsea.
