    Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana stretchered off in pre-season friendly


    Fofana stretchered off

    In a massive blow to Leicester City and their season hopes, promising defender Wesley Fofana was stretchered off on the hour mark of their pre-season friendly against Villareal.

    Fofana was on the receiving end of a terrible challenge from a Villareal player, which resulted in play being stopped for several minutes as the young defender received oxygen and was placed on a stretcher.

    He was replaced by young prospect Ben Nelson, and is now expected to miss much of the upcoming season, which will represent a huge blow to Brendan Rodgers. Fofana impressed last campaign, making 28 appearances in his debut season, and was reportedly drawing interest from Real Madrid.

    Leicester impress in pre-season

    In the game itself, which will now seem largely immaterial, the Foxes impressed. Facing the Europa League champions Villareal at the King Power stadium, Brendan Rodgers’ side raced into a two goal lead at half-time, courtesy of goals from Calgar Soyuncu and Harvey Barnes.

    Ayoze Perez added a third ahead of Fofana’s injury, which will certainly reinforce Leicester city’s European aspirations.

    However, with Fofana now out for a seemingly long stint of the season, another centre-back will certainly be a priority for Brendan Rodgers ahead of the transfer window slamming shut in four weeks. At present, only Jonny Evans and Calgar Soyuncu can be called upon as recognised centre-backs.

    With Leicester’s penchant for operating with three centre-backs, another will almost certainly have to come through the door.
