Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers has provided update on Daniel Amartey’s injury.
Amartey in his third consecutive game for Leicester since making his return from a two years layoff suffered another injury in Leicester’s 3-0 defeat to West Ham at the King Power Stadium prior to the international break.
The Ghanaian international was forced off the pitch in the 53rd minute after a challenge and was replaced by new signee Cengiz Ünder.
Speaking to the media ahead of Sunday’s game against red-hot Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium, manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Daniel Amartey will be out of action for “a number of weeks”.
“Obviously, Daniel Amartey is out with his hamstring for a number of weeks, so the international break hasn’t been too kind for us,” Rodgers said in his team news on Friday ahead of Sunday’s league tie against Aston Villa, his club’s official website reports.
Turkish center-back Caglar Soyuncu is also out of the game with an abductor strain and skipper Wes Morgan is also a doubt for the game.
Meanwhile, new signee Wesley Fofana is expected to make his on Sunday against Aston Villa.
