French national team midfielder N’golo Kante is reportedly to have asked Chelsea manager Frank Lampard to leave the club simply because he denied him an opportunity to attend his friend’s wedding.
French media Le Parisien reports that Lampard wouldn’t allow Kante to miss training for a friend’s wedding – a decision which the 29-year-old struggled to accept.
He is reported to have asked Lampard for time off training in order to attend a friend’s wedding. The English manager refused this request.
And this decision has reportedly led to anger from Kante, who has ‘struggled to accept the situation.’
The report adds that Kante still wants to do his best for Chelsea this season. But there is a feeling he could leave this summer, with Real Madrid his ‘dream’ move.
A reunion with former boss Antonio Conte was touted to be on the cards, with the Frenchman reportedly ‘open’ to a move.
But a move never materialized and Kante stayed put. However, a move in the near future could now be on the cards.
In total, he made just 28 appearances in all competitions and didn’t hit the heights he enjoyed in previous years.
Despite his poor season, it came as a surprise when reports emerged this summer that the anchor man could leave the club in the summer.
However, he struggled for form and fitness across the season.
