Villarreal striker Fer Nino has apologized for the serious foul that left Leicester defender Wesley Fofana with a broken leg. The injury occurred in a pre-season friendly between the teams, and Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers described it as a terrible foul. Fer Nino apologized publicly, via an Instagram post:
"I am writing to apologize publicly, as I did and privately with him (Fofana). My intention was never to harm him, as unfortunately happened. "I sincerely hope Wesley has a speedy recovery and returns to the field as soon as possible, to show that he is a high-caliber footballer."
Coach Rodgers also confirmed that Unai Emery, the Villarreal coach, had apologized immediately after the match. Rodgers told the media at the end of the meeting:
"He will be a great loss to us. It was a terrible challenge and of course we are very upset. The medical team was thrown directly into the widowprim and doctors had to put his wrist in place before sending him to the hospital. The leg was so damaged that it was not safe to intervene immediately. "Wesley will undergo another scan to see how long he will be out of action."
Leicester bench number 1 also spoke about the possibility of bringing another defender to the squad. Jonny Evans is still recovering from injury sustained in the FA Cup final against Chelsea, and defensive options are limited. However, there is also positive news for the "foxes". James Maddison is expected to stay at the club, despite Arsenal's interest in the midfielder. The news was announced by coach Rodgers himself who put an end to the speculation.
