Daniel Amartey is a player that seldom gets the higher tones in the media and by many touted as a player not good enough. The Ghana international is one that has been around since the PL season win joining from FC Copenhagen signed by Claudio Ranieri who did play him as a central defensive midfielder and later used as a right back alternative, a central defender in a back four and also covering in a back three.
This together with a long time absent with injury shows how Daniel Amartey has shown his best at several occasions and just fantastic to see that he also keeps the best forwards in PL quiet when called up on.Embed from Getty Images
He was listed as a possible transfer option last summer with Fulham being said to be interested, but nothing happened and he has since been a good option for Brendan Rodgers who again called up on him for the Manchester United game and also playing his part against Spartak Moscow, back to back wins.
With both James Justin and Wesley Fofana out, Daniel Amartey looks to have settled in front of Jannik Vestergaard in the pecking order and he really deserves the credit given.
Leicester will go into two new exciting games against Brentford in the Premier League and Brighton coming next as they will be opponents midweek. It looks as if Daniel Amartey do have cemented his place in the back three for now and at least until Wesley Fofana is back for good.
Nice to see that players step up when getting their chance and this is how you can move forward and find momentum especially when injuries strikes. Easy to write players off and just stamp them failures or not good enough with Daniel Amartey it’s a story of many faces as he has reached 62 league appearances since his debut back in January 2016.Embed from Getty Images
This is again what this football club should be all about signing players with promise, see them progress and hopefully see a blossom as the future will be written nicely going forward.
Daniel Amartey is still only 26 years of age, has a given place in the Ghana national team and so far won 31 caps, so far played 5 internationals this season being in the Ghana team for their 1-0 away win v. Zimbabwe on the 11th of October. Ghana are currently 2nd in their World Cup qualifying group with 9 points. South Africa the leading nation with 10 points.Embed from Getty Images
Great to see as Daniel Amartey again is establishing himself for club and country, being on the field in all three wins this season v. Wolves, Norwich and Man Utd.
