Thomas Partey ready to welcome opportunity to play in English Premier League

Published on: 12 July 2018

Ghana midfield kingpin, Thomas Partey will not throw out an opportunity to play in the Premier League.

Partey signed a contract extension with Atletico Madrid before the end of the season, a deal which keeps him in Spain until 2022.

The 24-year-old will not fend off any chance to join a Club in the Premiership.

“At the moment, I am happy at my club but in football, you never know when and where you’ll be in the next day or year,” he told KweséESPN.

“The Premier League is a good league, it’s very competitive and has some of the best players in the world,” he added. “Hopefully, one day. I would like to play there.”

“My agents are on it so I will leave everything for them,” he added. “For me, I am happy playing football and I will continue to play where I am now until something comes up for consideration.”

“Football is a game we all enjoy,” the 25-year-old concluded. “What I have done, I enjoyed it but it does not put any responsibility on myself because I try to enjoy the game.

“I try to do all of the work I’m asked to do and make sure I do exactly what the coach says. I am only under pressure when I am in front of the TV cameras.”

Thomas Partey was named the Footballer of the year at the recently held Ghana Football Awards.
