Leicester City defender, Daniel Amartey, has drawn a lot of praise after making his first Premier League appearance in two years in his side’s win over Manchester City.
The Ghana international was in superb form, helping Leicester to an emphatic 5-2 win over Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad.
It was only Amartey’s fourth competitive game in two years after suffering multiple setbacks in his recovery from an ankle injury he suffered back in 2018.
Black Stars Head coach CK Akonnor, and former captain Asamoah Gyan are among some who have praised the 26 year old’s performance on his Premier League return.
Congratulations on your massive comeback @DanAmartey.
Wishing you more of today’s performance going forward.
