Arsenal defender William Saliba has posted a silent reaction on Instagram after hearing the news of Chelsea’s Wesley Fofana being injured.
Fofana, 21, spent an eventful evening last night in Chelsea’s 3-0 home win against AC Milan in the Champions League group stage.
The defender opened the scoring against the Italian champions with his first goal for the Blues, hitting a simple low ball into the penalty area after a corner kick.Read:Ronnie O’Sullivan: World Snooker Tour should help women’s circuit
However, the center back had to be withdrawn during the first half due to an injury.
For now, Chelsea fans are patiently waiting to hear official confirmation from the club about the severity of the injury.
William Saliba’s reaction
Today, Fofana uploaded a message on Instagram reflecting on the injury problem he suffered against Milan.
“From laughter to tears I will be back stronger soon. Make sure of it,” he wrote.
After Fofana’s post on the app, Saliba responded in the comments with a prayer and a heart emoji. The link between the duo is that both are 21-year-olds at the heart of the French defense who played together at Saint-Etienne.
Additionally, Chelsea’s Trevoh Shaloba and Mason Mount responded in the comments section with a heart shaped emoji in support of their teammate.
Let’s keep hope there will soon be good news regarding the injury as he was already having the misfortune of a long-running problem at former Leicester City, which led to him being sidelined for an extended period of time last season.
Hopefully Fofana won’t be in the stands for any length of time.

Defender Trevoh Chalobah, 23, who hasn’t played much in football this season, looked really strong with his midweek European performance.
He has proven to Graham Potter that he is another great option on his team to call upon.
AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli wasn’t too complete for Chelsea’s defense in his post-match disruption, but the team should be pleased with his performances and rare clean sheets.
