Thiago Silva and Mason Mount Pulls incredible gesture towards N’Golo Kante during U21 match; Here is what they did
Kante have been met with tremendous support as senior Chelsea pair Mason Mount and Thiago Silva attended their U21s’ friendly win against Charlton on Friday
French midfielder N’Golo Kante returned to the pitch on Friday for the first time since injuring his hamstring against Tottenham.
World Cup winner Kante played 60 minutes of the behind-closed-doors match at the Blues’ Cobham training ground.
And the beloved midfielder was cheered on by Mount and Silva – who showed their support on the sidelines.
England international Mount even donned a Kante shirt as he watched the France international make his long-awaited return to the pitch.
Silva didn’t go quite as far as Mount with his support but was a keen observer from the stands.
Mount and Silva watched Chelsea’s young guns register a 3-0 win over their Charlton counterparts.
Goals from Dion Rankine, Silko Thomas and Malik Mothersille fired the junior Blues and Kante to victory.
