His transfer to Leicester, the French team and Olympique de Marseille: Wesley Fofana confides in the Canal Football Club this Sunday.



"It's incredible", jubilates Wesley Fofana.

The young (19) French defender still cannot believe he crossed the Channel and signed for Leicester from ASSE during the last transfer window.

Transaction at € 35 million.

Departure long rejected by Saint-Etienne and which earned him the remonstrances of the green people, who made his life difficult for many weeks, reproaching him "not to respect the club, to think only of money" ... “You cannot tell me that I lacked respect at the club, I have always wet the jersey, he defends himself on

Canal +

.

But I don't blame them, it's nothing bad. "

And to add, in order to explain the reasons for his departure: “The offer from Leicester, no one could guarantee me that I would have had the same the year after.

For my mother, I'm the man we'll say.

I take care of my mother, my little sisters, and I wanted to tell them not to worry anymore.

There were very difficult times when I was little.

What I have known, I do not want my sisters to experience it.

I managed to realize one of our wildest dreams, I wanted to go even higher so that we are even better. ” 

Contract until 2025

In the meantime, Fofana is also aiming high in sporting terms.

As high as possible, in fact.

And when asked if he has a dream, a club of the heart, the native of Marseille inevitably turns to Boulevard Michelet.

“Playing at the Vélodrome was incredible, in my city, in front of my family ... It will always be a dream to play at the Olympique de Marseille one day.

Why not one day, you never know. "

With a contract until 2025 at the King Power Stadium, and a market value well beyond the current financial capacities of the Marseille club, he will however have to wait a little before having a chance to don the Olympian tunic.

But there is another jersey that Fofana would see well put on soon, that of the France team.

"It would be a dream, it would be incredible," he salivates.

There is incredible competition, but it is good.

This will allow everyone to give their all, because there are people behind.

We will give everything to get there. ”

Trained at ASSE, Wesley Fofana played 30 matches with the Greens (2 goals).
