Sat on his judgement throne, Damon Carter calls in two Leicester City players into his imaginary office to review their respective seasons and tell them how important he considers them. One is an emerging talent, the other is entering his twilight years. But both are equally crucial.
Wesley Fofana of Leicester City
Appearances 12 / Premier League – 7 / FA Cup – 0 / League Cup – 0 / Europe – 5
Goals – 1 – Europa Conference League
Moment to savour – A crucial goal after an extended absence
Moment to forget – Horrific leg break before the season even started
City‘s seemingly average season can be pinpointed back to one man in August. Fernando Rodriguez of Villarreal thought it was a good idea to go flying into Wesley Fofana’s leg in a pre-season friendly. Every Foxes fan knew that as Wesley Fofana lay on the floor with a fractured fibula that the season was going to be a problem. Fofana is one of the most sought-after centre-backs after his breakthrough season.
What was most impressive was that as he lay in hospital ready for surgery, he was posting out social media messages already planning his road to recovery. Most Leicester fans wrote off the chance of seeing him back in any capacity till the 2022/2023 season.
