Wesley Fofana: Leicester City defender says he fractured fibula in pre-season win vs Villarreal

Leicester defender Wesley Fofana has revealed he has suffered a fractured fibula.

The French centre-back suffered the injury during the second half of Wednesday’s pre-season friendly against Europa League winners Villarreal.

Fofana was the victim of a late tackle by forward Nino, after which he immediately called to the bench, with physios and paramedics rushing on.


The 20-year-old had lengthy treatment on the King Power Stadium pitch, including being given oxygen, before being stretchered off to applause in front of a crowd of over 17,000 fans.

“Hello guys, many thanks for all your messages. It is a bad day today but I am in a tremendous club with a wonderful medical team,” he wrote on Instagram.

“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 soon and stronger: do not worry.”
