Leicester City’s Daniel Amartey throws away Chelsea pennant in dressing room after FA Cup win (Video below)



Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey has angered Chelsea supporters after he was filmed throwing away the club’s pennant in the dressing room after the Foxes’ FA Cup final win.

Youri Tielemans’ superb long-range goal in the second half was enough to seal Leicester City’s 1-0 victory over Thomas Tuchel ’s side at Wembley.

Having secured the club’s first-ever FA Cup trophy, Leicester’s players continued their wild celebrations in the dressing room after the ceremony on the pitch had finished.

But Chelsea fans were left fuming after Amartey was filmed tossing Chelsea’s FA Cup pennant aside during the dressing room celebrations.

Amartey briefly held up the pennant to the camera before he threw it over his shoulder to the floor.

The Chelsea pennant was exchanged before the game by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Kasper Schmeichel, who skippers Leicester in Wes Morgan’s absence.

After watching the video, one Chelsea supporter wrote on Twitter: ‘If these Chelsea players watch this Daniel Amartey video and don’t turn up on Tuesday, then there’s something wrong.’

Another Chelsea fan wrote: ‘Show this to all Chelsea players before the game on Tuesday, please. If they still can’t rouse themselves, then we have a bigger problem on our hands.’

Speaking after his side’s defeat, Tuchel believes Chelsea’s players had done enough to edge out Leicester.

‘We are disappointed and not angry with our performance from the boys,’ said Tuchel.

‘I think the performance is enough to win it.

‘I think today we were unlucky and we’ve never hidden that we need to have that to win at this level. You need momentum, decision making, little details, the referee.

‘I think we defended well, counter-pressed well, didn’t allow counter-attacks by one of the best counter-attacking sides in Europe.

‘Our decision making in the first half was too hectic, we tried to force the solution. We created two against two and three against three situations that were more promising than we made of it.

‘We had a big chance with Azpi and in the second half we controlled the game. We conceded a goal from nothing. It’s a fantastic goal and a lucky goal. We have a chance from Mason, an offside goal that was very close. We were unlucky today.

‘There is no single player who never loses. Now it’s about bouncing back and showing the right mentality on Tuesday. We missed a trophy and we are sad about that. But we have another competition now.’
