Arsenal midfielder Thomas Teye- Partey and Brentford winger Tariqe Fosu, will report to the Black Stars camp on Thursday 10th June, 2021 ahead of the international friendly against Ivory Coast.
The duo missed the team’s trip to Rabat for Tuesday’s friendly game against Morocco, the Ghana Football Association has confirmed.
The Country’s Football Association in a statement, said, head coach Charles Akonnor asked the two players to be excused from the team’s contingent to Morocco and make themselves available for the game against Ivory Coast.
Below is the FA’s statement on the two players as published on Ghanafa.org on Monday 7th June, 2021.
On Thomas Teye Partey
Thomas travelled to Cape Coast on Thursday to meet Coach Charles Akonnor over some personal issues. After the meeting which lasted for about an hour, the Coach excused him from the trip to Morocco – and asked him to report to camp for the second game against Ivory Coast. As the 1st Deputy Captain of the Black Stars, Thomas later joined his colleagues in training to show solidarity and support before leaving for Accra. The Arsenal midfielder will therefore team up with the rest of the squad on Thursday when the team returns from Morocco.
On Tariqe Fosu-Henry
Tariqe reported to camp Friday evening, after the sides training session in Cape Coast. Coach Akonnor engaged him briefly and told him that reporting late has scuppered his chances of travelling with the team to Morocco. The Brentford winger will also join the team on Thursday for the game against Ivory Coast.
