Daniel Amartey

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has heaped much praises on Ghana defender Daniel Amartey and fellow fringe players in the team.

 

Amartey is yet to make an appearance for Leicester after being on the sidelines with a long term injury and Rodgers praised the players for always being consistent when it comes to training.

“It’s not hard to keep the squad happy, but I have empathy for the guys because we’re only at the level we’re because of the players that aren’t playing," said Rodgers.

"We’ve got guys like Wes Morgan, Marc Albrighton, Christian Fuchs, Demarai Gray, Dennis Praet, all these guys aren’t starting games," the former Liverpool gaffer added.

"There’s Papy Mendy, who played a lot of games last season, and Daniel Amartey, those two aren’t even in the squad. There’s Hamza Choudhury.

"Their mentality and focus allow us to be the best that we can. It’s my job to manage that, I speak a lot with the players, they understand where it’s at, they’re clear on where they stand within the squad.

"I recognize how difficult it is, but they never show it. They turn up every day to train, to be the best they can be."
