Leicester defender Wesley Fofana barely flinched after his team-mate James Maddison gave his side the lead against Southampton. The Frenchman’s sulky reaction was captured by a fan who was sat near the 21-year-old, who was left out of the match day squad by Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers.
In the build-up to the match, the Northern Irishman had made it clear that any player that was not in the right frame of mind would not be selected to play for the club.
Fofana is continuing to push for a transfer to Chelsea behind the scenes, therefore Rodgers did not feel he was ready to be called upon.
Rodgers clarified his decision after also dropping Youri Tielemans to the bench: “One, a change in system and two, I mentioned in the week, we’re coming into a Premier League game and maybe we’ve got players who are maybe not quite in the right frame of mind.
“You can’t carry them, or certainly we can’t. So yeah, that’s the reason for the changes.”
Leicester were in front when creative midfielder Maddison fired home from a free-kick but Fofana did not show any emotion after the Foxes took the lead.
Sadly for the hosts the Saints would come firing back courtesy of Che Adams’ heroics from the substitutes bench.
The Everton-linked centre-forward made a real impact to equalise before bagging the eventual winner for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.
