Leicester City french defender , wesley fofana suffers horrible injury against villarreal in a friendly game that was played at the king power stadium.
The defender had to be taken to the hospital after the 20-year old center back was caught by a crude challenge from Villarreal forward Fernando Nino in the second period, with reports that the Frenchman suffered a broken ankle.
Wesley Fofana Suffers Horrible Injury
Fofana was treated on the pitch for five minutes after the challenge before he was taken off on a stretcher, with the 17,000 fans in attendance applauding his exit.
Should Fofana now face an extended spell on the sidelines ahead of the new season then the Foxes could be forced into the transfer market for a centre-back, particularly as veteran defender Jonny Evans is still nursing an injury of his own.
The fox won the clash 3-2 at the King Power Stadium, with the match coming ahead of their Community Shield meeting with Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday.
Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers is set to discuss Fofana’s injury at his press conference on Thursday.
