Leicester City manager Brendan Rogers has praised the attitude of Ghana defender Daniel Amartey after making his first competitive appearance in two years for the club. Amartey played full throttle as the Foxes gallantly bowed out of the Carabao Cup third round after defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday night.
The 25-year-old had not played for the club since suffering an injury in a Premier League game against West Ham in October 2018. “I thought that our approach to the game, the attitude and energy in the team was very good,” said Rodgers. “We pressed the ball really, really well,” Rogers said after the game.
“A lot of these players are getting [their] first minutes of the season. Daniel Amartey [is] playing his first game in nearly two years,” he added.
