Thomas Partey in line to start for Atletico Madrid against Getafe on Sunday

Published on: 14 August 2019

Ghana midfielder, Thomas Partey has given his head coach, Diego Simeone a selection headache after his impressive performance in Atletico Madrid's 2-1 victory against Juventus.

Diego Simeone's only dilemma for the first line up could be choosing between Marcos Llorente and Partey in midfield.

Although the former Tema Youth star trained two weeks individually and has only had a couple of sessions with the group, he produced a solid performance against the Old Lady after his return from his holiday after participating in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Atletico will face Getafe in their 2019/20 campaign opener on Sunday when the Argentine tactician will be asked to choose between the two midfielders.
