Sarri optimistic over Kante involvement
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is pushing for a return in Wednesday’s Europa League final, according to Maurizio Sarri.
The World Cup winner has been a regular under Sarri this season, although the Italian has asked Kante to play in a wider role.
He spent most of the campaign in Chelsea’s starting XI but a hamstring injury sustained against Watford in May saw Kante miss the final two Premier League games.
Kante has been working hard on his recovery and the signs look good ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final against Arsenal.
Sarri said: ‘Of course we are trying to recover Kante.
He had a part of the training [on Tuesday] with the group, so we are optimistic.
‘I think he will be able to play the final.’
