Wesley Fofana injury news ruptures ACL

Fofana, who joined Chelsea from Leicester for £70 million last summer, had a disappointing first season at Stamford Bridge due to a serious knee injury that limited him to just 15 Premier League appearances.

And after returning to play a significant role in the final few months of the season, the Frenchman has now suffered another fitness setback due to anterior cruciate ligament damage.

Fofana underwent surgery on his ACL injury on Tuesday, according to a statement from Chelsea. Although no timetable has been set for his return, he is likely to be sidelined for an extended period.

Tuesday's Chelsea statement read, "Defender Wesley Fofana has undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery."

Wesley Fofana has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament, according to football.london, and the defender will need surgery.

Due to a knee injury, the 22-year-old defender did not travel with the rest of his colleagues during their preseason tour of the United States. Fofana's problem has been scanned, and the results are devastating for the center-back.

In recent seasons, Fofana's injury woes have been incredibly unfortunate. In the summer of 2021, while playing for his former club Leicester City against Villarreal in a friendly, Fofana fractured his tibia and was sidelined for more than seven months.

The France international returned to Leicester City in March 2022 and played the duration of the season before signing an £80 million deal with Chelsea. Fofana's first season at Stamford Bridge was marred by additional misfortune.

In October, he sustained a knee injury that sidelined him for over two months. Four days after returning to training, he suffered a recurrence of the injury, which sidelined him for an additional 55 days. This latest setback, however, may cause him to miss a substantial portion of the 2023/24 season.

Center-back options for Chelsea now include Levi Colwill, Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, and Benoit Badiashile. Badiashile did not travel with the rest of the team for the preseason tour because he is still recovering from a severe hamstring injury he sustained towards the end of the previous season.

Wednesday evening, Chelsea will play Wrexham in the first match of their tour. The Blues will then take on Brighton, Fulham, and Newcastle United before facing Borussia Dortmund in a one-off match in August.
