Coach Isaac Boateng of Ghana, also known as “Opeele,” has refuted the assertion that Thomas Partey never gives his all for the Black Stars.
Partey has come under fire for what many have called a subpar performance during Ghana’s 3-2 loss to Portugal on Thursday.
Coach Isaac Boateng claims Thomas Partey has always been a technical victim of the Ghana national team in a video to defend the Arsenal player.
He claims that the Ghana national team’s coach is underutilizing the highly regarded midfielder.
“Thomas Partey is not my friend. He doesn’t even know me; He is a great player but; He has always been a technical victim of Ghana Black Stars,” Isaac ‘Opeele’ Boateng said in his post on Twitter.
He added, “Partey is a very good player. Let’s stop this issue of claims that he is always missing in Black Stars games.”
Following the loss to Portugal, the Black Stars will look to find their mojo back when they face South Korea and Uruguay in their next two games in Group H.
