Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has sent a message to N’Golo Kante after the Chelsea midfielder opted to stay away from training due to concerns for his health amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Henderson said: “I fully respect their opinion and their decision to do that. I think everybody is in a different situation with their family and at home.
“Ultimately, if you don’t feel comfortable or safe, you shouldn’t feel forced or pressured to come into work.
“I fully respect the lads that don’t feel comfortable as of yet, and I hope that they respect my opinion and that of the other players who have come back.
“Everybody’s situation is different but ultimately, for me, I feel very safe here at the training ground, otherwise I wouldn’t be here. My team-mates as well.
“I can only really speak for us, but I fully respect people in different situations who don’t feel comfortable. If any of my team-mates felt like that, I would fully support them and back them until they felt it was right to come back.”
