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.
Brendan Rodgers says Fofana dislocated his ankle and fractured his fibia against Villarreal. The ankle was reset in the changing room. Having scan today after swelling goes down to determine the extent of the damage #LCFC— Rob Tanner (@RobTannerLCFC) August 5, 2021
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.
