Jordan Henderson sends message to N’Golo Kante after Chelsea star’s refusal to train

Watford captain Deeney was frank about his refusal to train with the rest of his teammates, while Chelsea allowed Kante to stay away because of his personal fears.

“I fully respect the guys who don’t feel comfortable yet and I hope they respect my opinion and that of the other players who came back.
