Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana relatively verified a long lack from Brendan Rodgers’ team which will be a substantial blow.

Leicester might be dealing with the prospect of losing another among their leading centre-backs for a considerable amount of time. Wesley Fofana joined the East Midlands club from St Etienne in the summertime for a considerable fee and was forced directly into the spotlight due to the lack of Caglar Soyuncu.

Nevertheless, an injury was apparently sustained in the defeat to Leeds United and Rodgers stated the Frenchman would be assessed.

” We got a few injuries the other day (Sunday),” the Northern Irishman coach said. “Tim felt a little bit in the warm-up and tried to try in the video game, however he just wasn’t rather right.

” We’ll wait and see what the scan says, but we think he’ll be out for a little time period. Wesley Fofana, we’ll assess.

However, Fofana himself has seemingly validated rumoured news by retweeting a post on Twitter detailing that he would be out for around 5 weeks.

‘ Wesley will be unavailable for 5 weeks due to a thigh injury, ideally he will come back stronger. Get well quickly!’

In the Frenchman’s absence, Brendan Rodgers will be pleased to have Turkish protector Caglar Soyuncu back amongst the very first group. The former Freiburg centre-half missed the preliminary start to the project with a serious injury and has just recently returned.

Rodgers spoke about the respect that gamers such as Soyuncu, who had actually been out hurt, would require to reveal to those who have performed well in their absence and that they would need to combat to get their place back in the first string.

” All those gamers who have actually been out hurt, they are respectful of how well the team has actually done,” he said. “It was a process of getting Cags back in and involved. When he’s come in, he’s done extremely well. He will play at the weekend, so he’s prepared to carry out.

” It shows Wesley Fofana’s level of mindset, after me taking him off early in the Southampton video game and then chatting with him, to produce that performance, as a young player especially. To play with that perseverance, anticipation, and quality reveals the level he is at.”

Now however, with how brief Rodgers is concerning his centre-backs, Soyuncu will be called upon to come straight back in and change the injured Frenchman for Leicester’s match with Fulham on Wednesday.
