French rugby international Wesley Fofana has become the unwitting victim of social media abuse because of the 19-year-old St Étienne defender with the same name’s public desire to quit Les Verts for Leicester City.
Speaking to BeIN Sports, the rugby player had the following to say on his namesake’s situation:
“I am not even following his news, everything comes through to me on social media. It is quite funny. Some St Étienne fans are asking me to stay at the club.”
The footballer took to Twitter following the interview to add: “Leave him alone. Wesley Fofana, I am sorry.”
