Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey drew the wrath of Chelsea fans after he was filmed tossing Chelsea’s FA Cup pennant aside during their dressing room celebrations following their win over Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup.

The Chelsea pennant was exchanged before the game by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Kasper Schmeichel, but Amartey briefly held up the pennant to the camera before he threw it over his shoulder to the floor.

For Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, he didn’t care much about the incident and didn’t bother to use it as a motivation.

“I did not talk about it; I know there was that incident, but I did not talk about it before the match or in any meetings,” said Tuchel when asked about the video.

“The players were well aware. But I’m not into these things too much, because it can sometimes give you too much energy and feelings of revenge. I don’t like this at all.

“We do what we do and that’s to play football on the highest level possible.

“We need energy and hunger and that makes us a difficult team to play. And there’s nothing more I can say about it.”
