‘Disrespectful’ Daniel Amartey targeted by Chelsea fans for post-FA Cup final celebrations

 

Chelsea’s supporters have taken aim at Leicester City star Daniel Amartey, after footage of the defender’s celebrations in the aftermath of the FA Cup final surfaced online.

Tielemans decides it

The marquee fixture of the English football calendar of course played out on Saturday evening.

Chelsea and Leicester faced off in the finale of the FA Cup, in front of an expectant returning crowd at Wembley.

It was the former who, for obvious reasons, headed into proceedings as favourites, amid a stellar stretch of form since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel on the club’s bench.

When all was said and done in London, though, Leicester upset the odds, emerging on the right side of a 1-0 scoreline to clinch the club’s first -ever FA Cup crown.

Youri Tielemans proved the difference maker on the day, lashing home a stunning effort from 25 yards, to send the Foxes support in attendance into rapturous celebrations:

The post-match celebrations at Wembley, in turn, proved equally passionate as they did lengthy.

Leicester’s stars were joined by club owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha on the pitch following the full-time whistle, amid truly heartwarming scenes both for those in attendance, and watching on from home:

As outlined above, though, the actions of one Foxes star in particular have since drawn the wrath of the Chelsea faithful.

After taking to the dressing rooms at Wembley, Daniel Amartey was recorded throwing the Blues pennant onto the floor, much to the delight of those watching on:

Many a Chelsea fan, however, have labelled the actions on the part of the stopper as ‘disrespectful’, with just some of the social media reaction showcased below:
