Fofana missed out on 7 months of the 2021-2022 campaign, due to a broken leg and suffering from ankle ligament damage.

Fofana said that,

“I wanted to show my determination to the club. We also wanted to not receive money for my image rights, and my agents managed that perfectly, because I didn’t want to be bogged down by such stories. Chelsea’s system is quite similar to Leicester’s. They want to use me in a three at the back defence. I can play on the right or in the middle. I’ll adapt either way.”
