Wesley Fofana was injured during the game between Leicester and Tottenham on Sunday, on the final day of the Premier League. Hit in the thigh, the 20-year-old defender left the field in tears. He risks missing the second phase of Euro Espoirs with the France team.
Bad news for Sylvain Ripoll. The coach of the France Espoirs team will undoubtedly have to compose without one of his executives for the second phase of the Euro, which will take place from May 31 to June 6. Wesley Fofana was injured with Leicester on Sunday on the penultimate day of the Premier League.
The 20-year-old defender was hit in the back of the thigh early in the game. He had to leave the field, in tears, from the 22nd. A very worrying situation, especially since the former Saint-Etienne player was already in pain before this weekend.
Too short a deadline
One week before the quarter-final between the Bleuets and the Netherlands, on May 31 (6 p.m.), the blow is tough for Fofana. With such a short deadline, it seems hard to imagine him taking his place at the Bozsik Arena in Budapest. Recruited for 35 million euros last October, the native of Marseille has played 41 games with the Foxes this season (1 assist).
A successful adaptation across the Channel which allowed him to be cited among the contenders for the list of 26 of Didier Deschamps for the Euro A (from June 11 to July 11). Finally, he will probably not even play that of the Espoirs. It remains to be seen who could be called by Ripoll to replace him.
