Leicester fans heap praise on Ghana defender

Leicester City supporters have seen plenty to be encouraged by during Daniel Amartey’s first appearance for the club against Norwich City this weekend.

Amartey joined Leicester from Copenhagen during the January transfer window, and he has had to bide his time as he has waited for an opportunity at the King Power Stadium.

The 21-year-old has been used in plenty of development matches to date, but manager Claudio Ranieri handed him a start against Norwich.

The Ghanian was selected at right-back, and he showed plenty of promise throughout the match.

Amartey’s energy was evident from minute one, and although there were still some areas he need to work on, his performance was generally an impressive one.

Amartey was actually off the pitch when Leicester struck decisively as they claimed a 1-0 victory over the Canaries.

The January signing was withdrawn in the 78th minute, before Leonardo Ulloa’s last-minute header won the match for the Foxes.

The victory has lifted them five points clear at the top of the Premier League table, as their fairy tale season continues.
