FA Cup: Leicester City apologise to Chelsea ahead of EPL clash
Leicester City have apologized to Chelsea for Daniel Amartey’s actions in the dressing room after their FA Cup win at the Wembley on Saturday, according to talkSPORT.
Daniel Amartey was accused of ‘disrespect’ after he chucked Chelsea pennant to the floor as Leicester City celebrated in the dressing room.
The FA Cup winners have now apologised ahead of the Premier League clash between the two teams on Tuesday.
According to talkSPORT, the Blues have also accepted the apology.
It was Leicester City’s first FA Cup ever which came through a second-half rocket from Youri Tielemans.
The players lifted the trophy and then returned to the dressing room to continue the party and with some squad members streaming on Instagram Live, the celebrations were available for all fans to see.
Amartey took this opportunity to jump in front of one camera, pick up the Chelsea pennant exchanged by the captains pre-kick off, and hurl it over his shoulder.
It landed on a heap on the floor.
While rival fans very much enjoyed the moment, Chelsea supporters on social media were not impressed with the video.
Some even suggested the Blues should use it as a motivation for their game against Leicester on Tuesday.
As things stand, Leicester sit third on 66 points while Chelsea are fourth on 65.
Liverpool lead the chase in fifth with 63 points.
