Amartey: Leicester City boss Rodgers praises Ghana star ahead of West Ham United clash


The Foxes trainer assesses the output of the 26-year-old defender so far early into the season

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has praised the performance of Ghana defender Daniel Amartey as the club continues to battle with the fitness of centre-back options Jannik Vestergaard and Jonny Evans.

In the absence of first choice right-centre-half Wesley Fofana, who has been ruled out of action until the New Year following an injury in pre-season, Amartey has emerged as the preferred partner for Caglar Soyuncu in the heart of the Foxes’ defence.

His chances for first-team football was also boosted by the late arrival of new signing Vestergaard and injury to Evans.
