Fofana removed

A big blow to Leicester City and their hopes of the season, promising defender Wesley Fofana was tolerated in the hour of his friendly against Villareal.

Fofana received a terrible challenge from a Villareal player, which resulted in the game being paused for several minutes when the young defender was given oxygen and placed on a stretcher.

He has been replaced by the young prospect Ben Nelson and is now expected to miss much of the coming season, which will mean a big blow to Brendan Rodgers. Fofana impressed last season, playing 28 games in his debut season and reportedly sparked Real Madrid’s interest.

Leicester impressed in the preseason

In the game itself, which will now appear largely insignificant, the foxes impressed. Brendan Rodgers’ team took the lead by two goals at halftime against Europa League champions Villareal at King Power Stadium, thanks to goals from Calgar Soyuncu and Harvey Barnes.

Ayoze Perez added a third place ahead of Fofana’s injury which is sure to bolster Leicester City’s European ambitions.

However, with Fofana out for a seemingly long period of the season, another center-back is sure to be a priority for Brendan Rodgers before the transfer window strikes in four weeks. Only Jonny Evans and Calgar Soyuncu can currently be used as recognized central defenders.

With Leicester’s penchant for working with three center-backs, it is almost certain that someone else will have to come through the door.
