On Wednesday, Chelsea’s defender Wesley Fofana injured his knee in the 3-0 win over Milan. Graham Potter, Chelsea’s manager, said he is concerned about the severity of Wesley Fofana’s knee injury. After scoring one goal, the £69.5m defender left Stamford Bridge on crutches.
This year, Fofana returned from a broken leg, and after he set a goal for Chelsea, seemed he was back on track. Fofana scored the first crucial goal in the 24th minute for Chelsea to win against the Italian champions.
A few minutes after his goal, Fofana injured his knee and was forced to leave the ground. On Thursday, after undergoing a scan, he will find out if he faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Potter said that’s the one disappointing thing about the evening, and we need to scan tomorrow, and fingers crossed. He said I would not want to speculate on it now, but we are concerned, and we just need to wait until tomorrow and get it scanned and hope for the best.
Moreover, Potter, said these things happen, he’s a young guy, he’s a strong guy, and we will help him and support him. He said at the moment, there’s not too much to report, fingers crossed, and we are hoping for the best.
Fofana’s knee injury was negative for Chelsea in this match, but then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James scored one goal each, which led them to win over Milan.
Potter said about Reece that he is a fantastic player, and he’s a young player, so he’s developing all the time, and he will get better and better. Moreover, Potter said, I have enjoyed working with him, he can play any game in the world, and my job is to try and help him reach his potential because his potential is beyond the sky.
