Leicester fans blast Daniel Amartey after defeat to Man United

Fans of English Premier League club, Leicester City have taken a huge swipe at Ghanaian international Daniel Amartey for committing the season’s first penalty that resulted in his side’s defeat of the new season to Manchester United by 2-1.

Leicester City fans were enraged after Daniel Amartey smashed the ball with the top of his arm from a deflection off Morgan and referee Andre Marriner awarded a penalty to the Red Devils. Paul Pogba converted the spot-kick to open his account for the new season.

The former Copenhagen defender also became the first player to be booked in the 2018/19 Premier League season after he brought down Alexis Sanchez. Amartey was substituted after 62 minutes of play.

The Foxes made several attempts to restore parity but unfortunately, Jose Mourinho’s army made it two when Luke Shaw found the back of the net in the 83rd minute but Jamie Vardy got a consolation for Leicester in the dying embers of the game.
