Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey says he will return stronger after sustaining a suspected broken ankle in a 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday.
The 23-year-old midfielder suffered the horror injury after losing out in a tussle with Michail Antonio in the dying embers of the clash.
Amartey, 23, frantically signalled to the bench straight away and appeared in agonising pain.
The medical team rushed onto the field and were forced to hand the Ghanaian international oxygen.
Replays showed his leg get caught under his body as he fell to the ground, leading to the horrendous incident.
His team-mates rushed to his aid but looked seriously concerned as they came to the realisation of his injury.
A day after what is likely to be a setback in his Leicester career after claiming the right fullback slot in recent weeks Amartey tweeted: “Thank you all for the well wishes. We will be back stronger again!”.
Leicester manager Puel in an interview after the game said: “I hope it is not as a serious as we think. He will have to have an examination.”
“My first thought at the end is for my player Daniel,” he said. “He played well and gave his best so it is difficult to see this injury at the end. He will have an exam and we will see after. He has gone to the hospital, of course.
“I thought more about that at the end than the game.”
Thank you all for the well wishes.
We will be back stronger again!
