Thomas Partey has sent a statement to assuage the fears of his fans after missing out on starting for Arsenal’s previous two Premier League games.
Recall that the Ghanaian deputy captain, who had started 26 league games for the Gunners this season, was replaced by the Italian midfielder Jorginho.
Partey acknowledged to Standard Sports that he wasn’t worried about losing his place in the starting XI.#
“I am really happy for him (Jorginho) because, for a couple of weeks, he was the best at training and then at the end, you see that in the game.”
Partey went on to praise his teammate’s recent performances and highlighted the importance of competition in the squad.
“I am really happy for him and also happy that every player is ready to step in, so nobody is able to sleep. I think it is good and I hope everyone in that position will be ready to step in when they have the chance. The purpose of the club is to create competition and that helps the club to grow more, and also pushes us to be able to give our best in the game.”
Meanwhile. the gunners are in danger of seeing the Premier League title slip through their grasp this season, having fallen behind Manchester City with just three games remaining.
