Tammy Abraham has expressed his concerns about returning to training during the pandemic due to his father Anthony having asthma.
Still, he reaffirmed after that his priority is to complete the season.
“My dad has asthma, so if I was to return to the Premier League and, God forbid, I do catch this disease and bring it home, it’s the worst thing possible. The last thing I need is to catch the virus myself or be in contact with anyone with the virus,” the forward said.
In another development, N’Golo Kante has been allowed to miss Chelsea’s phase-one training session on Wednesday due to his concerns around safety as the Premier League begins the early steps of its restart plan.
The French World Cup-winning midfielder tested negative for coronavirus on Tuesday and conducted his first socially distanced session under Frank Lampard at Cobham Training Centre.
Lampard permitted Kante not to train on Wednesday and Chelsea as a whole has been supportive of the decision made by one of their star players.
Chelsea will allow the 29-year-old to train at home and will continue their efforts to make their training ground safe for the rest of their squad.
Kante has had an injury-hit season and had just returned after being out for a spell before football shut down in March amid the coronavirus pandemic.
He also collapsed in the dressing room at Cobham in March 2018 in front of his team-mates, which led to him missing a match against Manchester City. Subsequent cardiology tests, however, cleared him of concerns about his heart.
Callum Hudson-Odoi also missed training on Wednesday due to illness. His absence is not related to coronavirus nor his arrest at the weekend amid accusations of rape.
