Trained at AS Saint-Étienne, Wesley Fofana left Ligue 1 to join Leicester and the Premier League for a check of 35 million euros. But the 20-year-old central defender dreams of one day returning to the local league. Originally from Marseille, the French international hope openly confessed, during an interview for Oh My Goal, his love for Olympique de Marseille. Despite a current contract until June 2025, Fofana would be well integrated into the OM team.
“The club I dream of playing in ? The OM. It will always be a dream. Maybe it will happen in my career, I don’t know, I can’t know. But it will always be a dream because this is my city. This is my club, the one I supported being small, and that I still support. When I watch OM matches, I’m like a fan. I scream, I sing, it’s like that, it’s my club. Do I want, could I (play it)? That I can’t know “, said the former Stéphanois.
