Wesley Fofana put on a happy face and provided Leicester fans with an update after suffering a horrific leg break in a friendly match against Villareal.
Fofana suffered a fractured fibula during the second half of the Foxes’ pre-season friendly against Europa League winners Villarreal, after being struck with a rash challenge from Nino.
The French defender fell down and immediately called to the bench to highlight the severity of his pain.
Physios and paramedics came to his aid and the 20-year-old was stretched off to the applause of a crowd of over 17,000 fans at the King Power Stadium.
Fofana took to Instagram after the match to update fans about his injury.
.”Hello guys, many thanks for all your messages. It is a bad day today but I am in a tremendous club with a wonderful medical team,” he wrote.
“I will give you news as soon as I have a final diagnosis but we already know that I have a fibula fracture. I will come soon and stronger: do not worry.”
Meanwhile, a lot of speculation surrounds James Maddison and his future with the Midlands clubs.
Arsenal are reportedly in the running to sign the English playmaker, but Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers has said he has “no reason to sell.”
Quizzed on the exit talk, Rodgers said via Goal: “In conversations with the club, we don’t have to sell. That’s something that’s been made clear. The players want to stay. It’s a really exciting time at the club.
“There’s lots of gossip and speculation around but I’m loving working with the guys here, they love being here, and we certainly have no need to sell. So I would suspect we’re looking to keep our best players.”
