Jacob Teye- father of Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey, believes that his son has the qualities required of a player to wear the Black Stars armband.
According to him, the position comes with seniority and will however, continue to support his son till he gets the chance to lead the four-time African champions.
“I was very happy when my son got the first national team call up,” he told Cape Coast radio station Live 107.5 FM.
“I will support my son to become the national team captain if the chance come, sometimes captaincy is about seniority. My son is having the qualities a captain should have.”
He added: “Sometimes in football you will have your day and sometimes too you will be flop in a game so when it comes to that I always tell him to be cool.”
He also took time to give a word of advice to upcoming footballers.
“My advice to the youth is anybody who wish to be a footballer should train very hard but if you like ladies please you should be a tailor and stop any sports activity.”
Partey, who turned 27 today, is currently being chased by English giants Arsenal as they hope to secure his signature in the Summer transfer.
