'Didn't expect this' - Chelsea fans react to 'insane' Wesley Fofana update

Chelsea fans are elated that long-term absentee Wesley Fofana is finally back on the grass at Cobham.

The 22-year-old has entered the next stage of recovery following his anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction caused by a serious knee injury during pre-season in July.

Early signs suggested that the £75million centre-back could miss the entire 2023/24 campaign, but it is hoped he will feature at some point this season.

Fofana joined the Blues from Leicester City in the summer of 2022 and a separate knee injury meant he has made just 20 appearances since his arrival.

After a tough opening stretch of the season, Chelsea fans have taken to social media to react to a rare piece of good news for the Blues.

This fan was shocked by the “insane” recovery time from Fofana.

One fan was drooling at his return and suggested that Man City’s dominance will soon be over once Fofana is reintroduced.

Another supporter is eager to have a more “aggressive” defender in the starting line-up.

This fan predicted that he could return to action as early as January.

This supporter is confident that once Fofana is back and fit, Chelsea will finally be able to compete.

One fan simply urged Fofana to stay away from the recovery room after missing 41 games for the Blues.

This fan was amazed by his recovery and warned other fans that Chelsea will soon “cook” once again.

One fan expects “spooky times” in the future if Fofana can make two improvements to his game.
