Wesley Fofana suffered a horrendous injury in Leicester City’s preseason friendly against Europa League Champions Villarreal.

Fofana had to be stretchered off the field after Fer Nino’s horrific tackle on the Frenchman.

A release by the club has confirmed that Fofana will be out until at least 2022.

The game ended 3-2 in favor of the foxes but Wesley’s injury became a sour note of the evening.

After getting immediate treatment he was transferred to the hospital for further recovery from where he delivered a message to all of his supporters.

He said: “Hello guys, many thanks for all of your messages.

“It is a bad day today but I am in a tremendous club with a wonderful medical team.

“I will give you news as soon as I have a final diagnosis but we already know that I have a fibula fracture. I will come back soon and stronger.

“Do not Worry I am a Warrior”

We wish a speedy recovery to Wesley Fofana.
