  • Fatawu Issahaku faced Kamaldeen Sulemana in the game between Leicester and Southampton
  • Sulamana was red carded as Southampton suffered defeat at home
  • Issahaku joined the Foxes on loan from Sporting Lisbon

Leicester City winger, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku took a moment to sympathize with his compatriot, Kamaldeen Sulemana, who was sent off as Southampton suffered a huge home defeat.

Sulemana was making a return to the team after recovering from an injury that kept him out since the start of the season.

The Southampton star's first game of the campaign ended with him getting a straight red card following a tackle on Leicester's James Justin.

In a video shared on social media, Issahaku is seen comforting his Black Stars teammates as he walks off the pitch.

Sulemana could miss up to three matches if the Saints do not appeal the decision of the referee, which appears to be controversial.

Meanwhile, the Foxes got off to a brilliant start after veteran forward Jamie Vardy broke the deadlock after just a minute into the game.

Kassey McAteer doubled the lead 17 minutes later before Southampton pulled one back through Samuel Edozie.

However, the 2016 English Premier League champions restored the two-goal advantage through Nigerian midfielder Wilfried Ndidi. Stephy Mavididi sealed victory for Leicester with 23 minutes remaining, as reported by the BBC.

The 19-year-old joins the Foxes from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon on a season-long loan as he continues his development.

Issahaku, who moved to Sporting Lisbon in 2022, will join his new teammates at the King Power stadium after he gets league and international clearance.

Sulemana leaves Southampton teammate 'flying' with skills

Ghanaian winger, Kamaldeen Sulemana has been all over the internet after a video of him in training was shared by Southampton.

The 21-year-old, who is recovering from an injury that has kept him out since the start of the season, trained with the rest of his teammates this week.

Sulemana was left out of Ghana's squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Central African Republic due to the knock.
