Thomas Partey urged to leave Atletico Madrid
Former Ghana forward, Augustine Arhinful has told Thomas Partey to leave Atletico Madrid.
The 25-year-old had struggled to cement his name in the starting eleven of Diego Simeone since the arrival of Thomas Lemar from AS Monaco in the summer despite his impressive display for Ghana.
According to Arhinful, Partey 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.
