Chelsea fans are fuming with France manager Didier Deschamps, after he played Ngolo Kante for the full game last night.

Kante has only just returned from injury for Chelsea, after a fairly lengthy lay off.

With France already through to Euro 2020, Chelsea supporters were hoping that Deschamps would use some caution with Kante.

 

However, he ended up playing the combative midfielder for the full 90 minutes, as France picked up a 2-1 win over Moldova.

And Chelsea fans were left furious with Deschamps's failure to protect their player from injury.

Thankfully for Chelsea supporters Kante came through the game unscathed.

Blues fans will now be hoping that Kante doesn't play again on Sunday, when France are next in action against Albania.

Chelsea’s next match comes against Manchester City, so Frank Lampard will definitely want his star midfielder available to him for that clash.
