Fans all say same thing as Chelsea’s new £70m transfer Wesley Fofana left for dust as Dinamo Zagreb take shock lead


WESLEY FOFANA came under-fire just 13 minutes into his Champions League debut for Chelsea against Dinamo Zagreb tonight.

The Blues forked out a whopping £70million to Leicester City for the French defender last week.

Fofana, 21, made his first start for his new club in Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League victory over West Ham.

And that should have led to him lining-up full of confidence for tonight’s European showdown in Croatia.

However, despite Chelsea being the heavy favourites, they found themselves trailing early doors to Dinamo at the Maksimir Stadium.

And it appears that many of those watching felt that Fofana could have done a whole lot more to stop it.

The hosts caught the visitors on the counter attack as Bruno Petkovic won a header against Kalidou Koulibaly that sent Mislav Orsic on his way.

The Croatia international controlled it on his chest and then left Fofana for dust as he used his frightening pace to race clear on goal.

With Fofana failing to catch him, he then kept his cool to dink the ball past Kepa Arrizabalaga to break the deadlock.

And afterwards many were pointing the finger of blame at Fofana.

One tweeted: “How much was Fofana again? Man can’t even run.”

Another wrote: “£70 million spent on Fofana and he’s just been made to look like a League 2 defender with the pace of your grandparents.”

As a fellow viewer commented: “They should arrest the whole Leicester board for fraud.”

While a cheeky Leicester fan, still disgruntled over the manner of the centre-half’s exit, also joined in.

They tweeted: “Fofana dreamed of playing in the Champions League just so he could get skinned by some donny from Dinamo Zagreb.”
