Kane: “Conte wanted me; but I had an ACL”

Cobham Academy Graduate Todd Kane believed his chance of finally playing in the Chelsea first team had come under Antonio Conte but an ACL injury hampered his Chances.

The Full back impressed at NEC Nijmegen which lead to the likes of Conte and Emenalo keeping tabs on him.

Kane told Goal about how his chances of finally playing for the Chelsea first team slipped:

"That was the moment where I was close to making it,". "I had Michael Emenalo and Antonio Conte come to watch me ahead of taking over, against Ajax. They also watched me against Vitesse Arnhem.


"After that second game, they told me I was going to be involved in the first-team. Then, three or four months down the line I did my anterior cruciate ligament. I knew from that moment that it wasn’t going to happen for me at Chelsea."
