Wesley Fofana hinted about his return to the Chelsea squad
Wesley Fofana looks to be closer to making his return to the Chelsea team. He posted on his Instagram a picture of him being at training. Seeing him without any sort of knee support have given the Chelsea fans some hope. This brought plenty of encouragement to the Blues fans. However, his time away from the team made it a bit difficult for the fans to decipher where he will feature in the current team. Wesley Fofana could find his place in the Chelsea team threatened due to the new formation by Potter. With the back four being preferred by Graham Potter, it leaves the place for only two natural centre-backs. Thiago Silva is set to start for them as long as he remains fit. Furthermore, he is set to sign a new contract with the Blues.
Benoit Badiashile is the one who is currently partnering with him in the backline. Badiashile have been impressive for the club since joining them last month. Therefore it could be a case of sporadic appearances for Wesley Fofana. He can continue to learn from Silva before eventually taking his place after Silva’s time at the club.
