Crocked Ghana defender Daniel Amartey is facing four months on the sidelines, Leicester City manager Claude Puel has revealed
The Leicester City right-back suffered a dreadful ankle injury and had to be carried out by the medical staff of his outfit during the 1-1 draw with West Ham.
Amartey is expected to return to active football early next year after having a successful surgery, Claude Puel has revealed.
“Daniel has had surgery and it was a success. He will normally not be available for four months. I had sadness towards Daniel after the game, to sacrifice himself for the team like that,” said Claude at a press briefing.
Amartey after his injury thanked well-wishers and assured them of coming back stronger, he tweeted “Thank you all for the well wishes. We will be back stronger again!”.
Daniel Amartey will thus miss the Black Stars’ remaining games in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers but could return to fitness in time for the tournament in Cameroon next summer.
