Former Stoke City goalkeeper Carl Muggleton has spoken about how he was hired to teach Daniel Amartey driving at his school when he first joined Leicester City.

Muggleton wore the colours of 14 different clubs during his 22-year career.

Since retiring, Muggleton has worked in north Leicestershire as a driving instructor, helping hundreds of teenagers gain their driving licence at his Muggleton Driving School.

The 51-year-old has recounted having Ghana international Daniel Amartey as one of his students when he moved to the King Power Stadium in 2016.

He told the Athletic: “I was asked to give (Leicester player) Daniel Amartey some lessons to get used to driving here, booster lessons, but it didn’t work out because he wanted to drive an automatic, and I taught Tigers (Leicester’s pro-rugby side) player Joe Heyes, who plays for England Under-21s. I know his dad, Darren Heyes, because he used to play keeper for Nottingham Forest.”

Muggleton joined Stoke in 1994 and made 177 appearances, on top of the nine he had previously made on loan from Leicester.
