Daniel Amartey found himself in the headlines quite a bit this week after Leicester City’s win over Chelsea in the FA Cup Final.
And it appears the Ghanaian will have to brace himself for at least another day in the spotlight.
The defender provoked the anger of Chelsea fans on Saturday after being seen in a video tossing Chelsea’s pennant over his shoulder while the Foxes celebrated their FA Cup win, and Amartey found himself in amongst a scuffle tonight.

A poor foul on Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell by Ricardo sparked a fracas on the sidelines with Chelsea and Leicester players shoving each other.
Amartey joined the fray and initially attempted to separate the tussling players.
However, it appeared the Chelsea players were taking advantage of the melee to settle some personal scores.
Thiago Silva, apparently recognising Amartey, made a beeline for the Ghanaian and shoved him aside, prompting some more confusion as more Blues joined in.
After things had calmed down, referee Mike Dean gave a talking-to to the defender, eventually issuing him with a yellow card to the amusement of a number of Chelsea fans.
