Yusif Chibsah confirms Daniel Amartey is paying for playing in the AFCON with Ghana
Former Ghana international and close pal of Daniel Amartey, Yusif Chibsah has revealed the reason behind Daniel Amartey’s recent bench role at Leicester City.
According to him the Ghanaian’s decision to leave his club at the middle of the season and play in the Africa Cup of Nations is the reason why he is struggling to get into the Leicester City team at the moment.
"I am worried and the player is also worried because no player likes to be on the bench especially when you know you are in your peak," Chibsah said, as reported by MyJoyOnline.
"These are some of the issues some of us have when it comes to the timing of the Africa Cup of Nations - a player playing in Europe, joins his national team and then loses his position at the club side.
"They bought Ndidi specifically for that position because Amartey was leaving for the Nations Cup and to be honest Ndidi is playing so well and that has made it very difficult for Amartey to get a starting place.
"But Amartey is a utility player, he has lots of options and it is just a matter of patience - I know he will bounce back."
