League leaders Leicester City’s youngster Daniel Amartey is a huge Paul Scholes fan.
Amartey is a new Leicester signing from this January Transfer Window, having moved from Copenhagen in Denmark.
“When I was growing up, I used to like Manchester United and my favourite player was Paul Scholes,” Amartey told Leicester City News Service.
“I wasn’t daunted at all. I really admired how he played football.
“The Premier League is the best in the world, and how well Leicester have done this season was another attraction for me joining the club.
“To come to a team that is top of the Premier League was something I couldn’t turn down, and I didn’t find it a daunting prospect at all.
“I’d watched quite a lot of Leicester before joining and I remember saying to myself: ‘This is a good team’. I was very impressed with what they achieved last season.”
