Leicester has reportedly apologized to Chelsea after a video showed defender Daniel Amartey throwing their club pennant to the ground while celebrating the Foxes’ historic FA Cup Final win.
Brendan Rodgers’ side squeezed past Chelsea 1-0 in the Wembley showpiece on Saturday thanks to Youri Tielemans’ screamer, which saw the club secure their first-ever FA Cup trophy in front of 21,000 fans.
Amartey, 26, was filmed on Wesley Fofana’s Instagram Live after the match picking up the ceremonial pennant and flinging it over his head onto the floor – and according to Sky Sports News, Leicester has now said sorry for his actions.
