LISTEN JUN 14, 2020

Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey enjoyed 90 minutes on Sunday afternoon as his Atletico Madrid side shared the spoils with Athletic Bilbao on the back of a 1-1 draw.

The two clubs locked horns today in a Matchday 28 fixture as the Spanish La Liga season continues after the 3 months break as a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

A good start to the match at the San Mames Barria saw attacking midfielder Iker Muniain shooting Athletic Bilbao into the lead on the 37th minute.

The lead will however not last long with striker Diego Costa restoring parity for the away team after just 2 minutes of the celebrations.

Thomas Partey who started the match for Atletico Madrid played full-throttle on the day as he impressed with his timely tackles and precise passing.

The Black Stars asset has now made 25 appearances in the La Liga for the Rojiblancos and has 2 goals to the good.

He remains a transfer target of a host of clubs in Europe with several reports suggesting a switch to English Premier League outfit Arsenal.
