During Leicester City’s pre-season friendly versus Villarreal on Wednesday night, Wesley Fofana suffered a catastrophic leg injury.
With Leicester leading 3-0, Fofana was caught off guard by Nino’s lunging scissor challenge from behind, leaving the Foxes defender with a broken ankle.
Paramedics and club physicians hurried onto the King Power Stadium grass to treat Fofana, who was surrounded by his teammates and the club’s personnel in the dugout.
Fofana was stretchered off to the dismay of the Leicester fans after five minutes of treatment. If the injury is as severe as initially suspected, Leicester maybe without Fofana for a significant portion of the 2018 Premier League season.
