Chelsea fans will love Mason Mount’s heartwarming show of support for N’Golo Kante in return to action
Mason Mount was pictured wearing a backwards N’Golo Kante shirt as the French star returned to action for Chelsea Under-21s.
Kante has been out since August following a hamstring injury sustained in the Premier League draw with Tottenham.
After a seven-month absence, Kante was back in the Blues squad for the recent 2-2 draw with Everton.
As part of his rehabilitation process, the World Cup-winning midfielder took part in a match between Chelsea and Chartlon Under-21s on Friday.
Teammates Mount and Thiago Silva were pictured as Kante lasted 60 minutes and emerged unscathed.
In a touching show of support, Mount wore Kante’s No. 7 shirt over his coat.
It was also a positive afternoon for the Blues youngsters who secured a 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Silko Thomas, Malik Mothersille and Dion Rankine.
Kante’s return will be a huge boost for Graham Potter and his team.

Despite being tenth, the Blues can still salvage their disappointing season with a late charge for the top four – or even an unlikely triumph in Europe.
