Wesley Fofana: Anticipated return date following his injury sustained against Chelsea

Wesley Fofana Bournemouth

The Chelsea defender Wesley Fofana was taken off during the second half of the team’s weekend 2-2 draw with Everton.

But considering other problems, the Frenchman’s return to full fitness has been extraordinary for the Blues and has arrived at the ideal time.

The injuries suffered by Thiago Silva are the first indication that his advanced age may soon start to affect what has been a stellar playing career.

Fofana, though, has adapted to his new position as the defense’s captain quite well; up until the weekend, his team had won each game since his full comeback.

Both his outstanding defensive abilities and his marauding forward runs have been crucial for the team. He frequently launches attacks alone, much like Reece James did alongside him prior to his own injury.

Wesley Fofana to be out for 10 days

Fofana forced off in the second half after making many 90-minute outings, there will, however, have been known concerns.

But according to Gissing, he ought to be back by the end of the international break.

He said: “Wesley Fofana has withdrawn from the France squad due to a hamstring injury suffered against Everton, as Lequipe reported. Told Fofana is expected to be out for around ten days.”

At the weekend, the defence was immediately breached without his presence. Ellis Simms, a substitute, pressured Kalidou Koulibaly in order to score the late equaliser.

Supporters will want to see both Fofana and Silva healthy for the crucial Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Real Madrid.

The competition, which appears to be one of the most open in recent memory, contains the club’s sole opportunity to win a trophy or perhaps qualify for Europe next season.
