Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers has come out to hail Daniel Amartey after his return to competitive action for the first time in 2 years.
This is coming after the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the League Cup on Wednesday.
According to him, he was very impressed with Amartey despite him playing his first game in nearly two years.
He added that he is pleased with his players despite the loss vs Arsenal because he loved their mentality and attitude.
His words, “I thought that our approach to the game, the attitude and energy in the team was very good. We pressed the ball really, really well,”
“A lot of these players are getting [their] first minutes of the season. Daniel Amartey [is] playing his first game in nearly two years.”
“If you’re going to lose the game, you want to lose it with that mentality and the attitude, and I think the players gave us absolutely everything.”
“We just probably ran out of legs a little bit towards the end and that obviously affected our quality in the final third.”
“You never want to lose a game, but if you do and you have that attitude and energy then it always bodes well going forward.”
