Victim of multiple injuries this season, N & # 39; Golo Kanté could not play with the French team.
The midfielder was expected to hold on to Iceland (0-1), but another blow to the warm-up prevented him from playing the first match. Then the other against Turkey (1-1) three days later. However, the Blues' staff did not consider it relevant to send him back to Chelsea. Enough to provoke anger from Frank Lampard, who did not appreciate the small joke of coach Didier Deschamps at the playing time of striker Olivier Giroud.
" Before the truce, I know Didier Deschamps joked about Olivier Giroud. It was easy, of course we all have our problems, replied the manager of the Blues first. But Kante's situation is not funny, we communicated before the previous ceasefire because he was injured. We have to think about the good of the player. He had not gone, we had agreed. That's how things should be. "
Lampard complains about French staff
But at the last meeting, the stock exchanges were not as effective. " After the first game he did not play, he passed physical tests the day before the second matchsaid the Englishman. It was clear he couldn't play. Then he was lying on the bench, it's not communication. (…) Our doctors communicated, but sometimes the information didn't come back when I was waiting for them. "
" I understand that when players are with their respective choices, they belong to them, but it was obvious that he couldn't play. We would have preferred him to come back for treatment. (…) From now on, I will try to communicate better with each coach "Warned Lampard, who will no longer hesitate to harass Deschamps and the French Football Association, such as Bayern Munich with Lucas Hernandez.
