Amartey: Leicester City boss Rodgers going careful with fit-again Ghana defender

The Foxes boss talks about the way forward for the 25-year-old following his return to the pitch ahead of Sunday’s Premier League opener

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers wants the club to tread cautiously in re-introducing fit-again defender Daniel Amartey to Premier League action.

On the sidelines since suffering an ankle injury against West Ham United in October 2018, the Ghana international made a massive step on his road to regaining full fitness with 45 minutes of action in a friendly fixture against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, capping his return with his side’s goal in the 1-1 draw.

Leicester are set to play as guests to West Bromwich Albion in their 2020-21 league opener on Sunday.
