Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey has landed in hot water after his behavior in a video circulating on social media has drawn ire from football fans, mostly that of Chelsea.
The Leicester center back was an unused substitute as the Foxes claimed victory over Chelsea in Saturday’s FA Cup Final.
Youri Tielemans’ beauty of a long range strike proved enough to give the Foxes not just a win in the game but also their first ever FA Cup trophy.
The celebrations continued right from the Wembley pitch to the Leicester dressing room with players, technical team members and other officials in ecstatic mood.
Amid the jubilation and the post final celebration antics, a video has emerged on various social media platforms showing Daniel Amartey chucking a Chelsea pennant to the floor.
The action has been described as bad behavior leaving those who have watched livid.
There has been an outpouring of harsh words at Amartey judging from comments.
“That was so bad and unnecessarily disrespectful that the person recording ended the live video,” one wrote.
Another added: “One of my favourite things about our trophy room is the array of pennants we have hung from the ceiling. This is a d**k move and a massive disrespect.”
“That was pretty classless,” one simply replied.
“That’s very disrespectful. Disgusting really,” another read.
A fifth tried to explain why many fans are upset about it by saying: “It’s literally a sign of respect between the two clubs before kickoff. To throw it on the ground is honestly utterly disgraceful.”
It is not known yet what action Leicester City will take against the Ghanaian following the backlash.
