Former Black Stars Striker Urges Thomas Partey To Quit Atletico Madrid
Former Ghana striker, Augustine Arhinful has called on Black Stars midfielder, Thomas Partey to consider leaving his Spanish side Atletico Madrid.
The 24-year-old has been a key figure for the Madrid based club since coming from the academy side.
However, the arrival of French international and World Cup winner, Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco in the summer has given him a tough time to break into the first eleven of the team.
According to Arhinful, the hardworking midfielder deserves more playing time than he is currently getting at Atletico Madrid and therefore should consider seeking for better opportunities elsewhere.
"Joe Addo is very close to Thomas Partey and I have been arguing with him to advice the boy to quit Atletico Madrid," Arhinful stated on Happy FM.
"He should exert himself more on the pitch when given the opportunity to play."
The former Tema Youth enforcer has played three times for Atletico Madrid in the ongoing Spanish LaLiga season.
He has won 17 caps for Ghana since making his debut as a late substitute against Mauritius in the 2017 AFCON qualifier.
Partey has been a key member for the Ghana national team, captaining them on two occasions.
