Arsenal supporters have taken to social media to deliver their verdict on Thomas Partey after the midfielder’s performance for Ghana on international duty.
Partey, who sealed a £45million move from Atletico Madrid to Arsenal on deadline day, started for his country in their international friendly against Mali on Friday evening.
However, it turned out to be a fixture he will want to forget in a hurry as Ghana were beaten 3-0 win thanks to goals from Hamari Traore, El Bilal Toure, and Amadou Haidara.
Partey played the full 90 minutes against Mali, lining up in a midfield three Bernard Mensah and Alexander Djiku, although there’s no suggestion he was at fault for any of the three goals.
