Daniel Amartey

Ghana and Leicester City defender, Daniel Amartey is optimistic that he will return stronger and sooner than feared after sustaining what looked like a horrific ankle injury in their 1-1 draw with West Ham last Saturday.

Amartey, who has become a regular member of the Leicester City side this season, suffered the horror injury after colliding with Michail Antonio in the final minutes of the game.

Visibly in pain, Amartey signalled to the bench straight away and for attention and substitution.

The medical team rushed onto the field and were forced to hand the Ghanaian oxygen before he was stretched off.

Replays showed his leg got caught under his body as he fell to the ground, leading to the horrendous incident.

His team-mates rushed to his aid and looked seriously concerned as they came to the realisation of his injury.

A day after what is likely to be a setback in his Leicester career after claiming the right fullback slot in recent weeks, Amartey tweeted: “Thank you all for the well wishes. We will be back stronger again!”.

Leicester manager, Puel, in an interview after the game said: “I hope it is not as a serious as we think. He will have to have an examination.”

“My first thought at the end is for my player Daniel,” he said. “He played well and gave his best so it is difficult to see this injury at the end. He will have an exam and we will see after. He has gone to the hospital, of course.

“I thought more about that at the end than the game.”

The injury means Amartey who is a regular player in the Black Stars is likely to miss Ghana’s next Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia in November.
