Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says he is happy to see Ghana international defender get on the score sheet in their stalemate against 1-1 friendly Blackburn Rovers.
The Ghanaian scored his first goal in two years in their final pre-season friendly as they played a 1-1 draw with the Blackburn Rovers.
After over an hour of goalless action, Daniel Amartey found himself in the right place at the right time to convert a corner at the back post.
However, City were unable to defend their lead, and conceded their first goal in 260 minutes of pre-season action after Derrick Williams scored a header of his own.
Rodgers after the game stated he was pleased with the performances of his players which was a mix of regular first-team players and young players on the fringes.
“They’re a team that will be up challenging in the Championship next season. It was always going be a really good test for us, but I’m pleased for the likes of Daniel Amartey coming back, in his first game in a long time,” Rodgers said on the club website.
Leicester will hope to book a Champions League spot this season starting with an away Premier League trip to newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion next Sunday.
Daniel Amartey in 2018 suffered a horror injury during the club’s 1-1 draw with West Ham.
Amartey broke his ankle following an innocuous challenge with Michail Antonio which ruled him out for the rest of season and he is happy to finally get on the pitch again.
