African players abroad Partey ready to help Arsenal after return from injury

Ghana international Thomas Partey has pledged his readiness to help Arsenal finish the season on a high after recovering from injury.

Another injury sustained in October has meant that this season has also been hugely frustrating for the two-time Ghana Player of the Year, but he made a welcome return to action last week against Sheffield United, and is now only looking forward.

“Last year we did so well, and came very close to what we wanted to achieve,” he said, adding: “This year we have lots of big players and I know we are capable of doing big things. It’s been tough for me, being injured for a long time, but now I am ready to give everything I can to the team.

“Anything I can add to our level, I will do. I worked hard during my rehab to be able to come back to the level I need to be at. Now I want to get back with the team.”

On why he left Atletico Madrid to sign for the Gunners, the Black Star said: “One of the reasons I joined though was for that challenge. I know the Premier League is very tough, but I wanted to feel that challenge, to test myself, and feel capable of doing it. My agent supported me a lot, and my parents, and also everybody at the club was great for me. You have to stay positive, learn from everything that happens.”
