Journalist: Wesley Fofana 'a lot better' than Leicester City teammate Caglar Soyuncu

Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana is “a lot better” than teammate Caglar Soyuncu and should be a regular starter after recovering from a broken leg.
That’s according to journalist Zach Lowy, with the French under-21 international set to compete with a starting place against Turkey’s Soyuncu and Northern Irish ace Jonny Evans, as well as Denmark’s Jannik Vestegaard.
But despite his recovery and the likelihood of him starting regularly for the Foxes, Lowy believes it’s too soon for him to get a call up to the France senior national team for the upcoming World Cup although a call up isn’t too far away in reality.
“I think that Fofana is a fantastic young centre-back but its probably too early for him, considering the fact he’s still recovering from that long-term injury,” he told The Football Wonderkids.
“I do think that for sure it will be a very important season for him, and I think there’s a very good chance that if he gets back into his form prior to the injury that he could be in the France squad soon. But I think the World Cup will probably be a bit too soon for him.
“I think Fofana is a starter [for Leicester] no matter who stays this summer. I think he’s a lot better than Soyuncu.“
Fofana only managed seven appearances last season after his horrific leg break during pre-season last summer as Leicester finished in eighth place in the Premier League, meaning they will have no European football this season.
