Fofana Confirms Les Bleus Retirement Plan

Centre Wesley Fofana has confirmed he will retire from international rugby following France’s 2019 World Cup campaign in Japan.

The 31-year-old, who currently plies his trade with Top 14 outfit Clermont Auvergne, has made 45 appearances for Les Bleus but injury problems have restricted him to just one outing in the past two years.

Fofana is included in France coach Jacques Brunel’s squad for the upcoming Six Nations and is hoping to be involved in the World Cup when it gets under way in Japan in mid-September.

However, he will then walk away from international rugby in order to help prolong his career in club rugby.

“I’ll try whole-heartedly to make the World Cup, try my luck with the excellent centres that are called up, and in any case, I’ll stop playing for France afterwards, that’s for sure,” said Fofana.
