The standoff begins between Wesley Fofana and AS St-Étienne. The young central defender of the Greens wants to join English club Leicester where a 5-year contract is already awaiting him. October 5, the closing date of the transfer window, will be the course to take for Claude Puel’s team to keep it. In any case, the 19-year-old seems to be shelved by his coach, who had to stay in the stands for the last 2 games.
And this Sunday again in Nantes (2-2), he was replaced by Harold Moukoudi in the starting 11. Claude Puel, the manager of the Greens, returned to this choice, which was ultimately not one: ” Wesley had pain in his knee and in the sequence of matches, it was difficult. So he was not fit tonight “. A purely medical reason therefore, illustrated by the presence of an ice pack on the knee of the French international hope throughout the meeting.
