£45 million midfielder opens up and issues exciting message to Arsenal fans ahead of next season
Thomas Partey has backed himself to improve next season after an underwhelming first year at Arsenal.
The Ghana midfielder joined the Gunners for £45million last summer in a Deadline Day deal, after establishing himself as one of the best holding midfielders in Europe.
Arsenal held off alot of interest in the player to make sure that he would make a move to the Emirates, but despite all the hype and a few decent performances, he did not live upto expectations.
A mixture of poor form and injuries meant that he struggled in his first Premier League season, but he has opened up and told Arsenal fans that he will be looking to impress next time around.
He told TV3: “I think everybody has seen it, up and downs, we had good times and bad times.
“But you know this is my first season and I think I had to adapt to how they play, get used to my mates and I think now I’m getting used to them and I know with hard work, everything will be okay for the next season.”
Commenting on the Premier League, he added: “It’s not easy, that’s one of the best leagues in the world and if you want to be there, you have to be able to do everything good.
“So I like this challenge and I’m ready to do everything.
Partey is a top-class player that should have been a superstar for the Arsenal. So fans will be hoping that he lives upto expectations next season and keeps his word.
