CK Akonnor Visits Injured Amartey At Leicester City

The Black Stars boss has spent time with the injured defender who has been out of action since 2018.

Ghana coach CK Akonnor has extended a visit to injured Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey in England.

The new Black Stars boss is currently on a European tour, having assumed duty in January.

Amartey has been out of action since suffering an ankle injury in October 2018.

Akonnor was also spotted with Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.

"Coach CK Akunnor has visited injured Black Stars defender Daniel Amartey and also has some discussions with LCFC manager Brendan Rodgers," the Ghana Football Association announced on social media on Wednesday.

Initially expected out of action for six months, Amartey has been kept on the sidelines up until now owing to a series of complications.

He came close to a return to first team football in September last year when he made the bench for the Foxes in a League Cup win over Luton Town.

The injury ruled him out of last year's Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Egypt.

The former Copenhagen man is not expected to be named by Ghana for March's 2021 Afcon qualifying double-header against Sudan.
