Chelsea’s Wesley Fofana reacts to explicit Leicester City fan chant


Chelsea star Wesley Fofana has taken to social media late on Saturday, to provide a humorous reaction to a less-than-flattering chant aimed in his direction by the Leicester City faithful.

Fofana, and Chelsea, were of course back in action a short time ago.

Fresh off sending Borussia Dortmund packing from the Champions League in midweek, the Blues turned their attentions back towards matters on the domestic front, hopeful of making it three wins on the spin across all competitions at the expense of the aforementioned Leicester.

And, when all was said and done at the King Power Stadium, this is precisely what Graham Potter’s troops went on to manage.

This came as strikes on the part of all of Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic proved enough to put hosts Leicester to the sword by three goals to one.

Another member of the Chelsea setup to have played a crucial role on Saturday, meanwhile, comes in the form of Wesley Fofana.

After recently returning from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, stopper Fofana was afforded his latest start against Leicester, impressing before ultimately being hooked five minutes from time.

Not only that, but such efforts on the 22-year-old’s part came amid something of a tense atmosphere at times at the King Power.

Fofana, of course, is a former Leicester City player, but pushed hard for a move away from the English midlands upon Chelsea coming knocking during last summer’s transfer window.

In turn, it came as little surprise when the Frenchman was on the receiving end of a couple of explicit chants on the part of the home crowd on Saturday.

Fofana himself, though, appeared to take it all in his stride, even taking to social media post-match to make light of the situation:
