Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey has won the 2020-21 English FA Cup with Leicester City. This is Amarty’s second trophy with the Foxes after winning the English Premier League in 2016-17 season.
Leicester piped Chelsea FC by a lone goal on Saturday to clinch the FA cup thanks to Youri Tielemans. The match took place at the famous Wembley Stadium.
Amartey did not get the chance to play for his side and was an unused substitute when his side battled Chelsea to win the trophy.
This becomes his second league trophy after winning the 2015-16 Danish Superliga with FC Copenhagen.
He moved to England in January 2016 from Danish side FC Copenhagen after playing there for two seasons.
A move from Inter Allies in Ghana saw him playing in the Swedish league for Djugardens IF in 2013.
Amartey has so far played 81 games for Leicester City scoring 2 goals. He has also had upsets as a result of injuries during this period.
Controversy after FA Cup win
The Ghanaian defender created an unwanted attention for himself in the aftermath of the win. He was seen in a video throwing Chelsea’s pennant over his head in the dressing room in the wake of the celebrations.
Chelsea fans have blasted him causing Leicester officials to apologize to them.
Leicester take on Chelsea again on Tuesday in the make or break for a third place in the English Premier League.
The Blues are lagging behind the Foxes by two points difference with Liverpool just behind Chelsea by a point.
