Leicester City midfielder shocked over Amartey's age

Leciester City enforcer Danny Drinkwater says it was difficult to believe that Ghanaian guardsman Daniel Amartey was 21 years.
 
 
The Foxes have lost the dynamic N’Golo Kante – who is due back at the King Power Stadium with his new club Chelsea in the League Cup next week - from their title-winning engine room.
 
 
But Ghana international Amartey looked a decent replacement as Claudio Ranieri’s men beat Bruges 3-0 in their maiden Champions League outing on Wednesday.
 
 
And when England international Drinkwater was asked if he felt extra responsibility playing alongside a youngster, he replied: “I didn’t know how old he is!
 
 
“Is he really 21? Honestly, the way he plays, he doesn’t look that young.
 
 
"I wouldn’t say it’s more responsibility for me because he carries a lot of it himself.
 
 
“Yes, N’Golo is a big loss, but he is gone. We’re working for Leicester and we have to get on with it now. He’s a good player.
 
 
“This is an easy team to slot in to. Islam Slimani has slotted in perfectly up front, too. We try to make it as easy as we can to become part of the team.”
