Recent occurrences have demonstrated that the green half of London’s performance has substantially degraded as a direct result of this player’s absence, which can be directly attributed to this fact.
Fofana is without a doubt the player at Chelsea’s academy who arrived during the summer transfer window of 2022 with the unluckiest name, and it’s safe to say that he’s the one with the worst name overall.
The French midfielder sustained a life-threatening injury in the same game that The Blues scored their first goal in. This was a tragic turn of events for both teams.
Since then, Fofana has been handed a suspension that they have no choice but to accept, which means that they will not be able to compete in the World Cup in Qatar.
At the end of the month of October, the Blue Half of London published an article stating that Fofana had travelled to Dubai in order to conclude the process of rehabilitation.
Not so long ago, a photograph of the French player was uploaded to Snapchat and shared with users.
The Chelsea faithful will be able to receive updated information regarding Fofana’s medical condition as a result of this.
In the picture that Fofana uploaded, there is a shoe that is orange and has yellow lines on it. The photo on Chelsea’s £75 million contract on Snapchat was also accompanied by the caption “DONE,” which was not forgotten to be added.
There is no new official information regarding the case of Wesley Fofana that has been released by Chelsea as of this moment.
On the other hand, judging by the picture of the defender from the year 2000, it is entirely possible that Fofana has made significant progress in his recovery from his injury.
A preliminary medical assessment conducted by the Chelsea medical department suggested that Fofana would only be out of commission for approximately four weeks.
Since Fofana’s retirement, Graham Potter has planned for Trevoh Chalobah and Cesar Azpilicueta to assume his role as centre defender. Chalobah, though, is credited for contributing to Chelsea’s first loss under the 47-year-old manager. Meanwhile, Azpilicueta’s age prevents him from playing continuously. The 33-year-old general can only be utilised under precise conditions.
Fofana also endured a lengthy injury-related absence during the 2021/22 campaign.
Todd Boehly is concerned that his condition will not be appropriately evaluated.
Before joining the squad, the Chelsea president requested that Fofana be evaluated by his own team of physicians.
The 1992-born goalkeeper made egregious errors in the opening match of this year’s World Cup.
Prior to joining the Senegal squad for the world’s largest football tournament, Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy was not in excellent shape.
Kepa Arrizabalaga’s foot ailment facilitated the 30-year-old goalkeeper’s return to the Blues’ wooden frame.
This is also the reason Mendy performed poorly in Senegal’s Group A loss to the Netherlands. If the Chelsea goalkeeper keeps his concentration until the final whistle, the African representative may have at least one point on coach Louis van Gaal’s team.
Senegal is in the same World Cup group as the Netherlands, Ecuador, and host nation Qatar in 2022. Except for Qatar, the weakest team in the group, the next two spots will be contested by the remaining three teams. Senegal’s defence against the Netherlands has had a significant impact on their ability to continue.
Many Chelsea and neutral fans expressed their disappointment with Mendy’s performance on social media.
The ability of the 1992-born goalkeeper has been questioned despite being named UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year and FIFA Best Goalkeeper in 2021.
Mendy was nonetheless protected by his teammates and the Senegal team’s coach. Kalidou Koulibaly, the captain of the team, believes that errors are common in football and should not be taken seriously. Meanwhile, coach Aliou Cisse maintains his unwavering faith in Edouard Mendy.
Koulibaly stated in a press conference prior to the match against Qatar:
We play for the same club and are teammates on the Senegal national team, so we converse frequently.
As he is a vital member of our team, it is normal for him to experience difficulties.
“When a team loses a game, it is not the responsibility of a single player; it is the responsibility of the entire team.
We will do everything possible to change that, but I don’t believe we should make a big deal about it.
Tomorrow, I am confident that Edouard will play his best.”
Aliou Cisse, the coach, stated: “Edouard is doing fantastically well; he has steely determination. We discuss the game. The qualities of Edouard speak for themselves. He’s had his ups and downs, but he still has my complete trust. He’ll be out there.”
Mendy’s Senegal team is currently ranked third after losing to the Netherlands. At 20:00 tonight, the African representative will face the host Qatar. The only goal of coach Aliou Cisse’s teachers and students is to win.
At Chelsea at this time, rumors about the green half of London wanting to replace Mendy have appeared. However, the 30-year-old goalkeeper still has a chance to save his career if he plays well in this year’s World Cup.
