I’m not bothered whether I’m defending or attacking’ – Partey ready to play anywhere for Ghana

Thomas Partey, a Ghana midfielder, has stated that he is willing to play in any position for the Black Stars.

Following a string of below-par performances in recent years, the 28-year-best old’s position on the national squad has polarized opinion.

The Arsenal midfielder, on the other hand, was among the scorers in the Black Stars’ 3-1 victory over Zimbabwe in a FIFA World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

Partey started the game as a midfield pivot with Andre Ayew before moving forward after Baba Iddrisu was introduced in the second half.

The former Atletico Madrid player claimed he is ready to play everywhere in the national squad when asked about his position.

“I think it is the decision of the coach and he knows where every player in the pitch can play,” Partey said.

“We started with me playing behind because we have a lot of talent ahead who can score goals. The couch made a change for Baba to come in and I moved forward.

“Everywhere on the pitch where I can help in the national team, I am ready to sacrifice. I don’t mind defending, attacking.”

The Black Stars will play Zimbabwe in the rematch on Tuesday afternoon in Harare, hoping to complete the double over the Warriors.
