AFC Wimbledon marksman Kwesi Appiah has branded Atlético Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey as a ‘world class’ player.
Partey has been an integral member of Diego Simeone’s team this season, making 25 La Liga appearances for the Los Rojiblancos where he has netted three goals and also provided three assists.
The 25-year-old midfielder’s energetic display in midfield for the Spanish side has seen him appear on the radar of Manchester United and Manchester in the summer transfer.
He is one of the players Ghana will be relying on in their quest to end their 37-year title drought at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
When asked about how he sees the importance of the former Real Mallorca midfielder to the country’s chances of lifting the trophy, Appiah said, “Thomas Partey is world class.”
“You can see the his quality, you can see why he’s a wanted man. The guy is a sensational talent. And the team as a whole should be in a much better place,” he told BBC.com
Ghana is pooled in Group F of the 2019 Cup of Nations alongside defending champions Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
